Workers’ Compensation Coverage is Mandatory in Media, PA
Did you know that every employer who has one or more employees must carry workers’ compensation insurance by law in Pennsylvania? If they don’t, they can be sued by an injured employee and may be criminally prosecuted by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Your employer should have notices up in the break room or other conspicuous place about your rights and responsibilities under Pennsylvania workers’ compensation law. Those notices will tell you what you need to do when to submit your claim, and what doctors you need to see first.
The Workers’ Compensation Claims Process in Media, PA
How workers’ compensation is supposed to work is that you report your injury to your employer and fill out certain forms, your employer submits the claim to the insurance company, and the insurance company compensates you for lost wages and medical expenses caused by the accidental work injury.
Unfortunately, insurance companies do not have your best interests at heart. They serve their shareholders, not you. Shareholders expect the company to profit and expect to receive dividends. Because insurance companies only make money and issue dividends when they don’t pay claims your employer’s insurance company will use any and all possible reasons available – no matter how implausible – to deny or underpay your claim.
If this happens, you have the right to have a workers’ compensation judge hear your case. You most definitely need an experienced workers’ comp lawyer by your side, investigating your case, persuasively countering the insurance company’s arguments, and fighting for you for what you deserve.
Appealing a Workers’ Compensation Denial in Media
If you are unhappy with the decision of the workers’ compensation judge, you can appeal that decision to the Appeal Board. We will work with you at this step to make sure we have all the salient facts at hand and that your appeal is as persuasive as possible.
If that appeal fails and we agree that we still have a case, we can appeal to the Commonwealth Court. In rare cases, if the Commonwealth Court does not hand down the decision we want, we can appeal to Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court.
