Some of the reasons that Workers’ Compensation claims were denied include the following:
• Not enough evidence was presented that proves the injury was related to your job.
• You didn’t have enough medical treatment. Most of the time, Workers’ Compensation claims will only be approved if the injured party had medical treatment.
• You and your employer have a disagreement. Your employer may have said that you weren’t injured on the job or that you were injured while you were fooling around.
• You didn’t report your injury in time. In Utah, you must report your injury to your supervisor within 180 days of the incident.
