What to Do About a Short-Term Disability
If you are injured while performing work-related duties, and your injury results in a temporary disability, you may be unable to return to work for a certain period of time. Unfortunately, this may deprive you of a source of income to pay for regular expenses and necessary medical bills for the duration of your disability. Fortunately, workers’ compensation benefits are often available to those who suffer from short-term disabilities that are caused by workplace injuries.
If you or someone you know has developed a short-term disability because of a work-related injury, contact the experienced Minnesota workers’ comp attorneys of Robert Wilson & Associates today by calling (612) 334-3444. We are committed to helping our injured clients fight for the workers’ comp benefits they need to supplement both a loss of income and medical expenses associated with treating and recovering from a short-term disability.
Common Causes of Rejected Claims
Applications for short-term disability benefits can be complex, and the overall process can be quite lengthy, so it’s important to file for benefits early and correctly. Some of the most common reasons that workers’ compensation claims are rejected include:
- Incorrect application information
- Leaving information blank on an application
- Filling the incorrect benefits form
- Exaggerating a claim
These are all common reasons that workers’ compensation providers have cited as justification for a claim rejection, but an experienced workers’ compensation attorney can help make sure that you avoid these errors.
