A path for reversing a denial of benefits does exist, however. The appeals process –although complex – is worth being sought out by injured workers. Not only will a successful appeal provide financial security for employees and their families, but it will also provide employers with a powerful incentive to take steps to ensure a safer workplace.
A Philadelphia workers’ compensation lawyer can help
The strength of a claim for workers’ compensation will vary from case to case. Not all employees will be injured in the presence of their coworkers, or sustain injuries that make continued work clearly impossible. However, even claims for workers’ compensation that are less uncertain still deserve thoughtful attention and careful review. When a claim is denied for arbitrary reasons it can – and should – be appealed by an injured worker. The assistance and counsel of an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can increase the odds of a successful appeal.
We cannot stress enough just how invaluable of a resource a workers’ compensation attorney in Philadelphia will be for your case. Most injured workers do not have the resources or legal expertise necessary to properly gather the evidence they need for their claim and handle the appeals process. However, a skilled attorney can:
- Obtain all evidence needed to prove what happened
- Ensure that their client is properly evaluated by a trusted medical professional
- Make sure that every claim is filed within the deadlines set by workers’ comp laws
- Handle all correspondence with workers’ compensation insurers, employers, and attorneys
