Steps to take to get workers' compensation paid

When you are injured on the job, you expect that workers' compensation will kick in and help you get your bills paid and food on the table. Sometimes, this doesn't happen. Your claim is denied by your employer and you need to appeal. What are your next steps? How do you handle this in an expedient manner?

Your first step is to speak with a knowledgeable attorney, such as our attorneys at the Nicolet Law Office S.C. We can help. We do our research, listen to your side of what happened and form your appeal carefully and thoughtfully. Our law office has many years of experience in dealing with this type of situation.

The second step is to request a hearing. We can do this for you. We fill out all the forms, gather whatever back-up documentation is needed and file it with the Workers' Compensation Division of the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development.

Next, when you receive a notice of a hearing, be sure to inform your attorney. We can make the process much smoother and easier for you. With our guidance, you may get a positive outcome.

Lastly, you will go into mediation with your employer to come to a meeting of the minds over what is a fair settlement. If you can't come to an understanding, you will have to may request a formal hearing with an Administrative Law Judge. There is an application process that must be completed. You need to include a medical report to support your claim.
