Know Your Options When Your Workers’ Compensation Claim Has Been Denied
You were injured on-the-job. You haven’t been able to work, and you’ve been counting on Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation to pay the bills. But, then you received a Notice of Workers’ Compensation Denial.
You are in shock. You are scared. And, you are angry. You feel like the system has failed you. You are in pain, and your employer isn’t taking your injury seriously. But, more important, you don’t know how your family will make ends meet.
“Why Was My Claim Denied?”
There are many reasons why workers’ compensation claims are denied. Your employer may not believe your injury is job-related or that it occurred at work. Your employer may not be aware of the true extent of your injury. The company may feel that your injury is not severe enough to require medical treatment or time off for recovery. Or, your employer may be more concerned about saving money than worker well-being. Every workers’ compensation claim has the potential to raise the company’s insurance premiums. This is an incentive for many businesses to deny claims.
Of course, this isn’t fair. If you are injured on the job in Pennsylvania, you have a legal right to receive workers’ compensation. The Bulldog Lawyers at Shor & Levin are here to help when your workers’ comp claim is denied.
