What Happens When Your Compensation Claim Is Denied?

In North Carolina, a workers’ compensation claim can be denied for various reasons. In North Carolina, you have the right.

When the injured worker is the only witness to the event that resulted in the work accident, he or she would testify before the Industrial Commission – also known as the deputy commission – where the judge makes a decision on the claim. If the deputy commission finds that the injured person is not a credible source, then the worker’s benefits may not be awarded.

The other most common reason benefits are denied at the deputy commission is when the proposed claim lacks causation between the accident and injury. A health care physician must testify that the accident caused the injury that is preventing the injured employee from working.
