Workers compensation provides coverage for workers who are injured while on the job. In return for agreeing not to sue their employers, workers receive coverage that allows them to take the time needed to heal and get back to work. The worker receives coverage regardless of who is at fault in the accident.

The system provides a much needed safety net for workers. The workers compensation system is complex and not easily approached without the guidance of someone who understands the intricacies involved in securing a positive reaction to a claim for benefits.

If an injured worker files for workers compensation benefits, and that claim is denied, the worker has the burden of proof to show by a preponderance of the evidence that the claim made for benefits is reasonable and should not be denied. What this means is the worker must now present convincing evidence that the claim made was valid and benefits should be awarded. The usual method for doing this is to request a hearing at which the injured worker can counter the decision not to pay benefits.

Appearing at such a hearing is not to be taken lightly. When and how evidence can be presented to back up a claim is regulated by a thicket of rules. Timeliness of filing is another consideration. If an injured worker is in this situation, the worker should consider consulting a skilled workers compensation attorney.
