Bethlehem Workers' Compensation Appeal Attorney
Serving the Lehigh Valley Region
If your workers' compensation claim was denied, it is important to not give up. Many initial claims are denied. The workers' compensation system denies first claims for many reasons, from missing information to a disagreement with your doctor. Whatever the reason for the denial, you have rights and options, one of which is to hire a lawyer to help you appeal the decision.

Act Quickly if Your Claim Is Denied. Get the Details From Our Injury Attorney.
At Vellner Law, our attorney has 21 + years of experience handling denied claims and filing appeals. The most important thing to remember about appeals is that there is a limit on how long you have to file an appeal. That is why it is important to talk with an attorney right away.
The other reason to act quickly after your claim is denied is that failing to do so may undermine your contention that you need surgery, cannot work or require additional treatment before you can return to work. Workers' compensation judges are more likely to agree that your claim is legitimate and urgent if you respond to a denial quickly.

If you need to appeal a negative workers' compensation decision, it is important to have someone on your side who understands the system and the role that the insurance companies play.

Advice to People Whose Claims Were Denied
Our workers' compensation lawyer advises clients about the work comp appeals process. He tells people to avoid changing jobs if at all possible during the process so that their appeals are not delayed while the two employers' carriers dispute which one should pay your claim. However, the best advice he can give anyone whose claim was denied is to talk to an attorney as soon as possible. There is nothing to lose and much to gain.
