Workers’ Compensation Appeals

Workers’ Compensation Appeals in New Jersey and Pennsylvania

Representation in Workers’ Compensation Board Appeals

If you have been hurt at work and have filed a legitimate workers’ compensation claim, only to be denied benefits, you are not alone. Nearly half of all workers’ compensation applications are initially rejected. Often, employers and their workers’ compensation insurance companies have a practice of denying most claims, hoping that injured workers won’t fight back. If you aren’t willing to accept your employer’s denial of your rightful workers’ compensation claim, you want an experienced attorney to guide you through the appeals process. We can help.

We will help you understand the law and process, as well as your options and likelihood of success, so that you can make educated decisions about your future.
