Your Workers Comp claim has been denied
If you receive a Notice of Compensation Denial or you have been advised your claim is denied, you need to seek an attorney immediately. Benefits you may be entitled to under the Pennsylvania Workers Compensation Act are too important. You will need to file a claim petition and litigate the claim before a Workers Compensation Judge. That litigation will include your testimony, employer witness testimony, and submission of medical evidence, which in many cases, includes taking the deposition of your doctor. Count on Mooney Law to litigate your claim. We have a full litigation practice that isn’t just made up of fancy billboards and TV ads, but professional, proven and trusted representation.
Trouble with your employer
If you begin having trouble with your employer because you were injured at work, you need to Call Mooney Law right away. Many injured workers experience a dramatic change in the relationship with their employer and supervisors after reporting a work injury. Protect your rights and benefits by Counting on Mooney Law.
Your receive notice of an IME
If you receive notification that you have been scheduled for an ‘independent medical examination’, you need to call Mooney Law right away. The scheduling of an IME many times is the beginning of hostile action by the workers compensation insurance carrier against your workers compensation claim. Learn more about IME exams.
Mention of pre-existing conditions
Perhaps your boss, human resources, or the workers compensation insurance carrier mentions to you about a pre-existing condition, such as arthritis. Perhaps an X-Ray or MRI showed the existence of arthritis, even though you had no idea, because you did not experience any symptoms. It’s common. As we age, we develop arthritis. Many times, we are unaware because we do not experience any symptoms. However, insurance carriers latch on to that. You can read more about pre-existing conditions and workers compensation right here. Call Mooney Law right away.
Out of work and not getting paid
If your claim is denied and you are out of work, you will not receive wage loss benefits. You have to fight for them. Pennsylvania also has a limited acceptance, where the insurance carrier accepts the claims as a medical only, meaning they will pay medical bills, but they dispute wage loss. Being out of work with no wage loss benefits can be financially crippling. Call Mooney Law today to fight and protect your entitlement to wage loss benefits.
You may want to settle your case
Perhaps you are tired of workers comp. Perhaps you just wish to settle and move on. Perhaps the insurance carrier has contacted you about settlement. If you wish to settle your claim, call Mooney Law today so you can be assured you will get the maximum, reasonable settlement for you.
