Employer Denial, Modification or Suspension of Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Learn Your Options Following Denial or Suspension of Your Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Employers denying workers’ compensation benefits often cite that the injuries suffered were not serious, work-related or properly documented. While they can provide any reason in their denial of the benefits you deserve, their decision is not the final word in your workers’ comp claim.

At the Hazleton law firm of Laputka, Bayless, Ecker & Cohn, PC, we will request a hearing on your behalf. The workers’ compensation judge assigned to your case will take into consideration medical testimony and other arguments from both sides. Scheduling a hearing takes several weeks. A decision can take longer. Time is of the essence if you receive a Notice of Denial.

From the moment you are injured until your case is resolved, our attorneys and paralegals will be responsive, helpful and engaged in your case. They serve injured employees in Luzerne County, Carbon County, Schuylkill County, Columbia County, Lackawanna County and the surrounding region of northeastern Pennsylvania.

Contact us today for a free consultation. We urge clients to contact us early in the claims process, but we can step in at any point to advocate for you.

More Than Three Decades of Experience With Workers’ Compensation Claims

Following a modification, suspension or termination, the Workers’ Compensation Bureau (WCB) moves forward with mandatory mediation. This expedited process leads to faster resolutions as opposed to the time, expense and uncertainty of litigation.

Failure to secure a settlement or solution will lead our attorneys to take your case to court. They combine experience and track records of success at every level of the Pennsylvania workers’ compensation process, prevailing at hearings, trials and appeals.
