It is common for a work-related injury to get denied upon initial application to the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC). Workers’ compensation claims are commonly denied due to the following:

  • Lack of medical documentation
  • Alleged preexisting conditions
  • The injury was not work-related
  • Filing deadlines were missed
  • Technical errors in the workers’ comp application

Medical Documentation In Workers’ Comp Cases

While you may have provided medical documentation of your work injury, the documentation submitted in your initial application for workers’ compensation benefits might not have met the standards of the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.
