Workers’ Compensation Coverage is Mandatory in Springfield
Did you know that in Pennsylvania, every employer with more than one employee must carry workers’ compensation insurance? It’s true. If an employer does not have insurance and an employee is injured on the job, that employee can sue his or her employer. That employer might also be prosecuted criminally by the Commonwealth.
Workers’ Compensation Claims Process in Springfield
How workers’ compensation should work follows:
- There is a workplace accident and you are injured.
- You inform your employer and get the medical treatment you need.
- You fill out the necessary forms and submit them to your employer, who in turn submits them to the insurance company.
- The insurance company compensates you for lost wages, medical expenses, and temporary or permanent partial or total disability.
It rarely works this way. Because insurance companies only make money for their shareholders when they don’t pay workers’ compensation claims, or underpay them.
Don’t be a victim of the insurance companies’ money-making methods. You deserve to be compensated for your injury and lost wages, and we can help you get that compensation.
How Do I Appeal a Workers’ Compensation Denial in Springfield?
If your claim has been denied, you can go to workers’ compensation court and have your case determined by a judge. The judge’s findings are binding upon both you and the insurance company, however, if you disagree with those findings you can appeal to the workers’ compensation Appeal Board.
If you don’t get the compensation you are entitled to from the Appeals Board, we can appeal further to the Commonwealth Court. In rare cases, where there are novel issues of law, we can appeal from the Commonwealth Court’s decision to the state Supreme Court.
