Choose the Right Attorneys for Your Federal Workers Case

Suffering a work-related injury comes with many hardships, from the pain and mental trauma suffered to the inability to work and make a living. Federal employees who faithfully serve in their positions are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits in the event there is an injury that takes place at work. Like most areas of the law, federal workers’ compensation is a complex process, and injured workers will likely have many questions. It’s critical to choose an experienced lawyer who specializes in federal workers’ compensation cases. While it may appear that employers and benefits agencies are on your side, the truth is, they are looking out for their own best interests. Aumiller Lomax will ensure that your case is strong by helping you navigate the process without missing any steps, which is crucial to avoid delays or denials. We assist our clients with:

  • Filling out paperwork and applications accurately
  • Filing claims on time before important deadlines
  • Additional benefit claims as health conditions evolve
  • Ongoing support throughout cases
  • Appeals process representation if needed

The Federal Workers’ Compensation Appeals Process

Requests for federal workers’ compensation benefits do get denied from time to time. If you’re notified that your benefits request was denied, you may be confused about why and worry that you won’t receive any of the benefits you are entitled to. It’s important to remember that just because a claim was denied doesn’t mean your case is over. Cases can initially be rejected for various reasons, including oversight on the approving agency or mistake on your paperwork. Working with Aumiller Lomax from the very beginning is so important to limit any missteps on your initial filing that could cause a reason for denial.

Why is an Appeal Important for My Case?

If your benefits request was denied, our federal compensation lawyers will follow the appeals process and keep fighting for the benefits that are rightfully yours. We understand that an initial denial is not the end of the road. Having the knowledge and experience of filing successful federal workers’ compensation appeals provides our firm with a greater chance of success rather than you trying to navigate an appeal on your own or working with attorneys not specialized in federal workers’ compensation. Our appeal will aggressively seek the important information we can use for reconsideration of your approval, such as:

  • The reason the case was denied
  • Any oversights or mistakes made on the agencies’ end
  • If there was any essential medical information the approvers did not consider
