The Workers' Compensation Law in Pennsylvania permits settlement of your wage loss benefits, your medical benefits or both. Our attorneys have been very successful in obtaining maximum settlements for our clients.
Before accepting an inadequate settlement or going back to work without proper medical treatment for your injury, have your claim reviewed by an attorney at the Law Offices of Brian E. Quinn.
Notice of Compensation Payable
This document provides an injured worker protection under the Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act. The law requires that it be issued within 21 days following reporting of your injury to your employer. It provides for payment of medical benefits and wage loss benefits. Once a Notice of Compensation Payable is issued, your benefits cannot stop without an Order from a Workers' Compensation Judge. If this is not received by you within 21 days of reporting your work-injury, contact us.
Temporary Notice of Compensation Payable
This document provides an injured worker protection under the Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act but your employer or its insurance carrier may revoke this and issue a denial within 90 days.
Notice of Denial
If your claim has been denied, you may receive a Notice of Denial from your employer or its insurance company. A Notice of Denial means your employer has not accepted your claim and neither wage loss or medical benefits will be paid. If you receive a Notice of Denial and you believe your claim was wrongfully denied, contact us. We will file a Claim Petition on your behalf and rigorously fight for the benefits you deserve.
In some situations, you will not receive any documents even if your employer is paying wage loss or medical benefits. Without securing the proper documents, your employer can stop paying your benefits at any time without any notice to you. Contact us and we will be happy to review your case to secure the required documents to legally protect you.
