My claim is controverted. What does that mean?


If your case is controverted, it means that your employer is disputing how your accident or injury occurred. You may not receive benefits during the time your employer is disputing your claim. Usually, the issue must be tried before a workers’ compensation law judge where you will testify , along with any witnesses for or against your claim.
