An Attorney May Be Necessary
The vast majority of workers’ compensation claims are resolved without a person turning to an attorney, but that is not always the case. There are times when employers or workers’ comp insurers put up challenges. They can delay or deny claims, thereby making it very difficult for an injured worker to receive the medical care and wage replacement that they need.
A skilled workers’ comp attorney in Pennsylvania it’s going to be an invaluable asset if you are facing difficulties from your employer or workers’ comp insurer. An attorney can use their resources and legal expertise to conduct a thorough investigation of the incident in order to determine liability and help refute any negative claims made by the insurer or the employer. If a claim is denied, an attorney can help the injury victim begin the proper appeals process for these claims. This can include them:
- Helping a subsequent review of the initial application.
- Taking the claim to the administrative law judge.
- Helping the injury victim through the Appeals Council.
- Being ready to take the case to federal court.
