If your Workers’ Compensation claim was denied in Pennsylvania, you’ll need a Claim Petition filed and the sooner the better.
You have 3 years from the date of the work injury or from the date you first learned that your condition could be related to work. Don’t hesitate, however, because your claim will be stronger if filed soon after the injury date. Your recollection will be clearer and you’ll need the guidance of an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer from the outset, to maximize your claim.
Are You Out of Luck?
Absolutely not. Many insurers will deny claims under the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act for various reasons- some good, some bad. Regardless, you should immediately call a workers’ compensation attorney so that he or she can file a Claim Petition on your behalf. The insurers/employers are hoping that by denying your claim, you will give up. A denial only means you have to prove your case in court.
