Denial of Benefits & Filing a Claim Petition
Once the injured employee gives the employer notice of his injuries, the employer or its insurance carrier must agree that the injury or illness is work-related before benefits are paid. If the employer or insurance carrier denies the claim, the injured worker must file a Claim Petition to be heard before a Workers’ Compensation law judge who decides which party will prevail. If you need to file a Claim Petition for your on-the-job injury, it’s time to call the Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation attorneys of PearsonKoutcher, LLP.
