Workers’ Compensation Appeals Attorney in San Diego
If you have applied for Workers’ Compensation and the insurer denied your claim, you will have the right to appeal the decision. If you didn’t use an attorney to help you file your initial claim, the appeals process is the time to bring someone in.
You will present your appeal in a hearing in front of an administrative law judge. The hearing is less formal than a court case; however, you will still have to prove your case. You will be able to present evidence, like medical records and new information not in your original application. You will be allowed to present witness testimony (if relevant).
