How to Fight a Denied Work Comp Claim

Denied Claim for Workers Compensation

Attorney Jeffrey Pribanic working on denied claims from his Pittsburgh office.

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.

If your claim is denied by the insurance carrier or your employer you should seek the services of an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.  Jeffrey A. Pribanic has been successfully litigating and prosecuting workers’ compensation claims for over 30 years throughout Western Pennsylvania.

Presently due to Covid-19 almost all hearings are held telephonically whereby all parties attend the hearing by phone.  Therefore even again, presently the process of obtaining an attorney and the litigation process is a bit easier than in the past.  If you have received a denial of your workers’ compensation claim anywhere throughout Western Pennsylvania I can help with the enforcement and successful prosecution of your case.

Why do you need a lawyer who specializes in workplace injuries?

Here are some common questions you might be asking about work comp claims that our lawyers can help you answer:

  • Can an employee refuse workers’ compensation?
  • What happens if my workers’ comp claim is denied?
  • How do I fight a workers’ compensation claim?
  • How are workers’ comp claims denied? How can I win my worm comp claim case? 

Consider this:

  • In one year the U.S. Department of Labor and Industry reported there were 1,030 workman’s compensation claims approved. In that same year, the agency reported that 1,683 Pennsylvania workers’ compensation claims were denied.

Pittsburgh Best Work Comp Lawyer Jeffrey PribanicWow, where to start! 1st class attorney. Jeffrey was my first and only choice as my lawyer for my workman’s compensation case and settlement. He got my workman’s comp checks started immediately then started on my settlement. Jeffery is very professional and he was always there for me when I had any concerns. My injury is going to be with me for life. The insurance co. sent me to at least 10 Dr.’s to disprove my case to no avail. We settled and Jeffrey got me a very large settlement. Hire Jeffrey!


Client Review, Pennsylvania 

Best Injury Lawyer


“You should be aware that WC litigation is complex, and your employer or your employer’s insurance carrier will be represented by an experienced attorney,” the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry warns on its website.

You want to be sure you have the services of a Pribanic & Pribanic lawyer who is experienced in the realms of workplace injuries and workers’ compensation claims.

When seeking out a Pittsburgh workplace injury attorney or workers’ compensation lawyer, keep these thoughts in mind:

  • 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.

If you want to fight a workers’ compensation determination, or believe you have a legal claim, it is in your best interest to call us at Pribanic & Pribanic rather than wait so we can be sure your associated deadlines are met. Call the Pribanic & Pribanic legal team today to schedule a free initial consultation: 800-392-4529.
