Your Options After A Denied Claim
If your workers' compensation claim has been denied, you still have options. Do not feel pressured to accept an inadequate settlement or return to work when you do not feel well. Talking with an attorney at Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., can help you understand those options and make the right decisions to maximize your potential benefits under Pennsylvania workers' compensation law.
Any worker injured in a workplace accident or suffering from an occupational disease such as cancer may be entitled to compensation for lost wages and medical bills. But in some cases, claimants are denied full workers' compensation benefits for reasons including:
- Your employer has delayed reporting injury or treatment of injury.
- Your workers' compensation benefits may pay the medical portion but not cover wage loss.
- Your insurance company may refuse to pay for necessary medical treatment.
- You may have been released for light work by a workers' compensation doctor, when no light work is available by your employer.
