According to the Idaho Industrial Commission, approximately 45,000 workers are injured every year in Idaho. Despite suffering a valid workers’ compensation claim, many Idaho workers will have their work comp benefits denied. Workers’ compensation insurance companies often dispute all or part of a valid claim.
Insurance companies may deny medical bills, lost wages (temporary total disability), permanent partial impairment, permanent disability in excess of impairment, and retraining. In our experience, Idaho work comp insurance carriers routinely deny benefits that should be paid.
