Texas Workplace Injury Attorneys
Experienced Counsel in Workers Comp Appeals
If you have filed an application for benefits under the Texas workers’ compensation laws for a legitimate workplace injury, only to have your request denied, you want an experienced and aggressive lawyer to protect your rights in the appeal process. Even though the majority of work comp claims are initially denied, you can often get the benefits you need and deserve with the efforts of a knowledgeable and experienced attorney.
At Bailey & Galyen, we bring years of experience to people facing the denial of a valid workers’ compensation claim. We built our successful practice on a commitment to providing a high level of personal service and attention to every client. We will take the time to learn all the details of your case, as well as your goals, so that we can formulate a legal strategy to get the outcome you seek. We will carefully explain how the appeals process works, as well as your other options and likelihood of success, so that there are no surprises and you can make educated decisions that are in your best interests. We stress open communication on all issues, keeping you aware of all developments in your case, so that you get the results you expect.
Our Workers Compensation Appeals Practice
We handle all matters related to appeals of a denied workers’ compensation claim, regardless of the stage of the process you are in. We will help you prepare for the Benefit Review Conference (BRC), whether a dispute resolution officer will act as a mediator in your case.
If the BRC does not result in a mutually agreeable settlement, your claim will be scheduled for a Contested Case Hearing (a CCH). In a Contested Case Hearing, the hearings officer can listen to testimony from witnesses, and will eventually render a decision. If you are dissatisfied with the ruling at the CCH, you can file an appeal to a three judge panel, which will conduct a review of the transcripts, provided the appeal is filed within 15 days. If you are still displeased with the result, you can take your claims to the District Court of Appeals and to the Texas Supreme Court, if necessary.
Don’t stop fighting just because your initial workers’ compensation claim has been denied. We will aggressively protect your rights on appeal. Contact us or call us anytime, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to set up an appointment. Your first meeting is without cost or obligation. Se habla español.
We Work On A Contingency Fee Basis
Personal injury lawsuits are complicated and expensive to mount and that is why we take all cases on contingency, meaning there is never a fee until we recover a settlement in your favor.
