Have Your Benefits Been Denied, Not Paid or Cut Off? We Can Help.

Often, an employer, or its insurance company, refuses to pay workers' compensation benefits to an injured worker, without a good reason. Sometimes, they pay less than they should for each week of workers' compensation benefits. Other times, they cut off weekly benefits too early.

If weekly workers' compensation benefits are denied, delayed or terminated, without a reasonable excuse known at the time, then penalty benefits may be sought at hearing. The commissioner may order a penalty of up to 50 percent of the denied, late or terminated weekly benefits. The attorneys at Lawyer, Dougherty, Palmer & Flansburg, P.L.C., will help you prepare penalty claims and take them to hearing.
