    Default Claim Denied What Happens if I Just Forfeit

    My claim was denied almost immediately and have received no monetary benefit, what happens if I just forfeit at the pre trial hearing. Would the state accuse you of fraud or just drop the whole thing?

    They'll accuse you of fraud if you filed a fraudulent claim, forfeiting won't change that.
    If you have a legitimate claim why would you forfeit, especially after appealing the denial?

    You can withdraw at anytime - past statements and evidence can still be used against you if you filed a fraudulent claim.
    This isn't give it a try, if you get caught, withdraw and everything's fine - Trump learned that lesson.
    You sound paranoid.

    Legitimate claims get denied by the insurance companies all the time. They often get overturned on appeal using the litigation process. Talk to a workers' compensation lawyer about your claim. Consultations are free everywhere.
    Get some legal advice from someone who is knowledgeable. There is no reason to "forfeit" a legitimate claim.
    The North Carolina Court of Appeals has held that "In contested Workers' Compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity." Church v. Baxter Travenol Labs, Inc., and American Motorists Insurance Company, 104 N.C. App. 411, 416 (1991).
