Having your workers’ compensation claim denied is not the end of the world. Indeed, at Wolf Baldwin & Associates, PC, this is exactly the reason why many of our clients come to us. They tried to fill out the necessary paperwork and file their workers’ comp claim on their own, but were met with rejection.
Fortunately, people with denied workers’ compensation claims have options to apply for another review, resolve potential discrepancies, submit additional medical evidence and — in the best of outcomes — get approved for a level of benefits that matches their injuries. Indeed, a denied workers’ compensation claim is common and it does not always mean you are ineligible. It might just mean that there’s a little more legal groundwork to be done before an approval letter is received.
At Wolf, Baldwin & Associates, PC, there is nothing more satisfying to us than to see an injured and financially struggling worker get the medical benefits needed to pay for his or her recovery. Furthermore, to know that one of our clients has obtained wage replacement benefits so he or she can meet daily expenses while getting back on two healthy feet again, is equally rewarding.
The world can be a difficult and scary place. Workers slave away at their jobs to put food on the table and support their families, and even the shortest of disruptions in health can cause the worker to be unable to earn a living in this regard. The possibility of this happening is frightening enough, but when it actually does happen to you, it can be terrifying.

If you are struggling to get the employee benefits you need and deserve, there may be legal strategies that will help you get them. At Wolf, Baldwin & Associates, PC, we want to put our 70 years of combined experience in Pennsylvania workers’ compensation law to work for you.
