Appealing Denied Workers’ Compensation Claims
The workers’ compensation system in Pennsylvania provides financial compensation to injured workers while protecting their employers against the threat of litigation. However, the system is not perfect – even the most valid claims for workers’ compensation are sometimes denied.
If your workers’ compensation claim has been denied, don’t give up. You still have options to pursue the compensation you need to make a full recovery from your injury. At Newman Williams, P.C. in Stroudsburg, we help injured workers protect their rights and fight for adequate benefits at every stage of the workers’ compensation claims process.
Appealing A Workers’ Comp Denial
You have the right under law to appeal the workers’ compensation judge’s decision. The Workers’ Compensation Appeal Board will review your case file and your attorney may make an oral argument but you generally will not have an additional hearing for your appeal.
An appeal differs from your initial claim for benefits in that no new evidence can be presented. It is important to work with a knowledgeable attorney who can make the strongest possible case for the benefits you deserve. Our team has helped many injured workers throughout the Poconos region secure compensation.
If you haven’t filed your claim for benefits yet, we highly recommend you speak with an attorney before you do so. An experienced workers’ comp lawyer can help you ensure you are making the strongest case for benefit – and set your case up for the best possible result in the event of an appeal.
