Workers’ Compensation Is Not Automatic
Pennsylvania law mandates that employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. That same law is structured to allow injured workers to recover medical expenses and lost wages, without having to prove that the employer was at fault. Unfortunately, that does not mean every workers’ compensation claim is automatically accepted and paid.
Even valid claims are frequently delayed or denied, or benefits are terminated too soon. Employers and insurance companies may look for any opportunity to avoid having to pay out benefits. All too often, they are more concerned with their bottom lines than the fair treatment of the workers who have been critical to their success.
When an employer or insurer denies workers’ compensation or takes action to terminate the payment of existing benefits, it is crucial to get an attorney involved as soon as possible. At Conlon Tarker, P.C., we have decades of experience standing up for injured workers and helping them obtain or preserve the workers’ comp benefits they need.

Who Is On Your Side?
It is not safe to assume that your employer is on your side. Employers and insurance companies may not want to pay for your work injury. Consequently, they may look for any opportunity to deny your claim, even going so far as to say that the injury was not work-related or that it is not serious. You may find your employer or the insurer trying to get you off work comp and back into the workplace before you have fully recovered.
Let our law firm help you maximize your recovery time so that you return to work when you are ready. We are on your side.
