Potential Challenges to Your Workers’ Compensation Claim
As many workers find out when they file for workers’ compensation, the program has its pitfalls. The first is that your employer may try to deny your claim. The second is that your employer is out of compliance with the program.
Your Workers’ Compensation Claim Is Denied
In Pennsylvania, workers’ compensation claims may be denied only in limited situations. Even if your work injury was largely your fault, you are still entitled to workers’ compensation if the injury occurred at work or while performing job duties.
But in two specific situations, your workers’ compensation claim may be denied. The first is if you were intoxicated by drugs or alcohol at the time of your injury. The second is that your injury resulted from reckless behavior rather than carelessness.
Even if neither of these applies to you, there is no guarantee your workers’ compensation claim won’t be denied. A lawyer from Cordisco & Saile LLC can help if your workers’ compensation claim gets denied.
Your Employer Is Out of Compliance With Workers’ Compensation
For your claim to pay out, your employer has to be in good standing with the workers’ compensation system. Unfortunately, many injured employees find out their employer is out of compliance when they file a claim and discover it is not valid.
If this happens to you, hope is not lost. There may be other ways we can help you fight for compensation for your work injury. For a free case evaluation and for help from a workers’ compensation lawyer in Eddington, PA, call Cordisco & Saile LLC at 215-642-2335.
Count on the Cordisco & Saile LLC Team to Help You Recover Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Our workers’ compensation lawyers in Eddington, PA, can help you file a successful claim to get the money you deserve. You may be able to recover compensation for the following:
Workers’ compensation pays for reasonable and authorized medical treatment for your work injury.
You may qualify for disability benefits if you cannot work while recovering from your work injury. Disability benefits equal two-thirds of your average weekly wage, up to the maximum amount under Pennsylvania law.
If you are able to work but have to take a lower paying job after your work injury, you may qualify for a portion of the difference between current and previous wages.
If your injury caused you to lose the use of a specific body part or function (e.g., hearing loss, vision loss, a lost limb, etc.), you can recover special damages to compensate you for this loss.
If your loved one lost their life at work, you may be able to collect a death benefit from workers’ compensation.

We May Be Able to Pursue Work Injury Compensation From Third Parties
You can file a workers’ compensation claim in Pennsylvania if you suffered an on-the-job injury. If you work for a private company, state law requires your employer to cover you via workers’ compensation. But you generally cannot sue your employer.
However, if a third party played a role in your injury, we can pursue compensation from that party in a lawsuit that is separate from your workers’ compensation claim.
Examples of third parties that may be responsible for work injuries include job site owners, contractors, and subcontractors.
Our personal injury lawyers can fight for medical bills, lost wages, and other economic losses in a third-party lawsuit. You may also be eligible to recover compensation for several non-economic damages, such as:
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Scarring and disfigurement
As we investigate your injury, we will identify any third party that may be liable for your work injuries. To find out more, call Cordisco & Saile LLC today at 215-642-2335.
