Was Your Workers’ Comp Claim Denied?
If your workers’ compensation claim has been denied, the State Board of Workers’ Compensation has an appeals process in place. You have the right to appeal if you think that the judge who denied your claim made a legal mistake.
The best way to successfully appeal is to do so with the help of a highly qualified lawyer. At Markowitz & Richman, with locations in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, we have established a record of success in workers’ compensation appeals before the State Board of Workers’ Compensation, the Superior Court and any necessary courts of appeal.
Reducing Worry, Increasing Success
Because the law on appealing denied claims is complicated, it’s best to work with an attorney. Your lawyer can help you navigate the workers’ compensation system, saving you the stress and worry of handling matters yourself.
Many people worry that they may not be able to afford a lawyer. But, under Pennsylvania law, your attorney cannot take a fee for representing you without approval of the judge assigned to your case. Usually, those fees are only payable if your attorney has recovered income benefits on your behalf or those benefits continue instead of being terminated. This means that you don’t need money to pay attorney’s fees to work with us on an appeal and you don’t need to worry about paying us attorney’s fees until you get the benefits you need and deserve.
