Philadelphia Workers Compensation Claim Petition Attorney

When you get hurt on the job in Pennsylvania, the state requires your employer to have insurance that can replace your lost wages and pay for any necessary medical treatment as a result of your injuries. However, the benefits to you are not automatic. There is a specific process that you must follow in order to claim benefits. And when filling out the forms necessary to submit your claim, it is important that they be as complete as possible and provide the information that convinces your employer’s insurance company to agree to pay your claim. Failure to provide adequate information can result in delays before receiving your benefits or even in having your claim denied.

At Gross & Kenny, LLP, we have been helping injured workers recover the benefits they are entitled to for over 30 years. Our Philadelphia worker’s compensation claim petition attorneys are relentless advocates when it comes to getting our clients compensation for work-related injuries.

You Made a Claim for Workers’ Compensation Benefits and It Was Denied

  • You were injured while doing your job.
  • You reported it to your employer within 21 days so your benefits would be retroactive to the date of your injury.
  • You went to see a doctor from a list of physicians provided by your employer.
  • You understood you would hear back as to whether your claim was accepted or denied in another 21 days.
  • You haven’t been able to work and have been really counting on the workers comp benefits coming through.
  • You just received a Notice of workers’ compensation denial.

What should you do next?

The Next Step is to File a Workers’ Compensation Claim Petition

If you believe your workers compensation claim was wrongly denied you may file a Claim Petition with the Pennsylvania Bureau of workers’ compensation. You have 3 years from the date of your injury to file your petition but you want to get it filed as soon as possible. Getting benefits is already going to be delayed and the court process does not go quickly.

Once your petition is filed, a judge will then review the evidence of your injury and decide if you should receive benefits. If the judge rules against you, you can still appeal the decision 3 more times but the reality is that the more times your claim is denied the less likely you will receive benefits.

That is why it is so important that your Claim Petition specifically responds to the reasons your claim was originally denied and you can show convincing evidence that will cause a workers’ compensation judge (WCJ) to rule in your favor.
