If Your Claim Was Wrongfully Denied, We Can Help

Every year, thousands of hardworking people in New York City go through workplace accidents that leave them injured. If you are one of these people, then you probably filed a workers’ compensation claim with your employer. However, your claim was inexplicably denied – even though you know your employer is at fault for your injury.

Many New Yorkers experience the exact same predicament. We know because we help them get the compensation they deserve. We are Chopra & Nocerino, LLP, an experienced law firm that stands up for injured workers. We can guide you through the appeals process and if your workers’ comp claim was denied.

Why Would They Deny My Claim?

You are probably wondering why your employer’s insurer would deny your claim when all you have done is tell the truth and try to pay your medical costs. The insurance company may claim that:

  • The accident’s cause is not clear
  • The injury is not work-related
  • You did not properly alert your employer
  • Your claim is past the statute of limitations
  • Your injury is self-inflicted
  • You were under the influence of drugs or alcohol when injured

However, insurers do not always have injured workers’ best interests in mind: they have their own profits in mind. Some insurers will wrongfully deny claims that are perfectly valid.

Don’t Give Up, You Can Appeal

Chopra & Nocerino, LLP, can determine why your claim was rejected and use this information to help you in your appeal. Then, we will guide you through the steps of the appeal, including attending your hearing before the Workers’ Compensation Board. We will not rest until we feel confident that we have done everything in our power to recover compensation for you.
