Frequently Asked Questions about Denied Claims
FAQ: How does workers’ compensation settlement work after a denied claim?
Even people with significant injuries and legitimate claims are denied by their employer. Anyone whose claim is denied by their employer or the insurance carrier has a right to file a Claim Petition with the Workers’ Compensation Bureau in Harrisburg following which your case will be assigned to a Judge for a hearing, or series of hearings. This process is not simple. It requires the presentation of evidence by the injured employee and, when necessary, medical testimony to confirm that the injury is work related.
The submission of evidence to support your claim can be complicated. Rulings by the Judge regarding the admissibility of evidence can have a serious and controlling impact on the outcome of your case.

Most experienced, legitimate lawyers focusing on workplace injuries will offer a free consultation to discuss your case.
When you go to the consultation, be sure you take all of your supporting documentation. This means that you must take more than just the paperwork you received regarding your workers’ compensation determination. A lawyer will want to see any injury reports, police reports, investigative reports and medical paperwork that you may have. Remember: It is better to error on the side of too much information than not enough information.
Like many legal proceedings, an injured worker who is navigating the workers’ compensation system should be aware that there are often strict deadlines by which information must be received, and paperwork filed.
