We have 50+ Years of Experience Helping People Injured At Work
Workplace injuries are frightening and you need help navigating the legal process. Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to pay for medical expenses and lost wages when you suffer a work-related injury or contract a disease which is aggravated by the work you perform. However, many Workers’ Compensation claims are denied because the process is confusing and workers who are struggling to recover may not include the right information in the right way for a reviewer to approve.

If your claim for workers’ compensation has been denied, you should seek a work injury attorney immediately. The team at Munley Law can evaluate your claim to determine whether you are missing any documentation or paperwork that can impact the success of your claim.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: I’ve been in an accident at work, what’s the first thing I should do?
A: Right after any accident, no matter how minor it may seem, you should immediately report your injury to your supervisor and make sure that a written record is made. After you report your injury, you will receive calls from insurance adjusters asking for details. Do not allow yourself to be pressured to sign away your Workers’ Compensation rights by an insurance company. In fact, never sign any insurance document until a lawyer has reviewed it first. Also, you should seek legal advice before undergoing any medical examinations requested by an insurance company. Without realizing it, you may be waiving some very important legal rights.
Q: Is there a statute of limitations for workers’ compensation cases?
A: Under Pennsylvania law, notice of any injury suffered must be provided to a supervisor at your place of employment within 120 days of the date of injury. Failure to tell your employer can result in your claim being denied, so it is very important that you make the report immediately after the accident. Keep in mind that to be successful, any workers’ compensation case must be filed no later than three years from the date of injury or disability.
If you or a family member suffer from a disease that was contracted during your employment (such as Black Lung disease from working in a coal mine, or mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure), the laws are a bit different. According to Pennsylvania law, the disease and inability to work must occur within 300 weeks from the date you were last employed in the job where you contracted the disease.
