Help For Delayed Or Denied Workers’ Compensation Claims
Denial of a workers’ compensation claim sometimes begins with an employer. The employer may refuse to cooperate, contending that an injury was not related to work activity. The employer may imply or state outright that an injured worker has fabricated or exaggerated an injury.
A denial or delay of your workers’ compensation benefits can prevent you from getting needed medical treatment and cause financial hardships. The Belt Law Firm, P.C., can step in to advocate for you in appealing your case. Call us today in Kingston at 570-714-3343 or in Hazleton at 570-535-3343
Was Your Legitimate Work Injury Claim Denied?
Sometimes an employer or human resources department takes down information about a workplace injury and then fails to act on that information. “Ignore it and it may go away” seems to be the sentiment in such cases.
In other cases, an employer or a workers’ compensation insurer acknowledges part but not all of an injury claim. The responsible party may refuse to pay some or all pertinent medical bills. Sometimes an employer or insurer will agree to pay medical bills but refuse wage loss pay on the basis that the employee “can still work” – even when doctors say otherwise.
