Workers’ Compensation is a system that was designed to benefit both employees and employers. Employees injured on the job receive payment to cover the medical bills and lost wages as a result of their injury. Employers, on the other hand, are protected from direct lawsuits by employees. The system was designed to function flawlessly. A worker gets injured on a job site, reports the accident, and receives benefits while he is recovering from the injury.
The problem – insurance companies are out to make money at the expense of workers. In recent years, studies show that insurance companies deny over 46% of all individual workers comp claims.
The Pennsylvania Workers Compensation Act is supposed to cover your medical expenses and lost wages whether or not the accident was your fault, whether or not you had a pre-existing condition and whether or not you reported it to your employer. That is why it is crucial to contact a lawyer if your employer tells you that your claim is being denied because the injury was your fault or you failed to report a pre-existing condition.
