What Happens When an Employee Is Denied Workers Comp
The law requires an injured worker to give notice of a work injury to their employer within 21 days of the injury and no later than 120 days after the injury. Afterward, the employer is required to issue a Notice of Workers’ Compensation Denial within 21 days if they choose to deny the claim. In the event that their workers’ comp claim is denied, the injured employee must file a Claim Petition with the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation within three years from the date of injury. If a Claim Petition is not filed within the necessary time frame, the injured worker may be barred from receiving any benefits related to the injury. Therefore, if your workers’ comp was denied in Reading, PA, call the lawyers at Liever, Hyman & Potter, P.C., for a free consultation to discuss your options.
