Getting injured while on the job is a scary experience. You may be unsure about how you will pay your bills or how you’ll receive pay after a workplace accident. Fortunately, workers compensation benefits are available for most employees, but these benefits can only pay for so much for so long. For instance, if you received a disability from your workplace accident, it could be months, even years before you fully recover from your accident. Will your benefits cover you through this time?
That’s why if you’ve been hurt on the job, you need to speak with a top Pennsylvania workers compensation attorney at Munley Law. For more than 55 years, our team of personal injury lawyers have helped thousands of clients throughout Pennsylvania with their workers compensation claims. The work of our attorneys have been recognized by Best Lawyers of America, naming J. Christopher Munley as the Best Workers’ Compensation Lawyer in the Allentown area for 2016.
Why Was My Workers Compensation Claim Denied?
Workers compensation benefits are designed to pay for medical expenses and lost wages when you suffer a work-related injury or contract a disease which is aggravated by the work you perform. However, many workers compensation claims are denied because the process is confusing, especially to someone who has never completed a claim form before. You can miss an important piece of information, for instance. And even if you did answer all the questions correctly, you can still be denied for something else, like missing a deadline or your employer had decided to dispute your claim.
Whatever the reason may be, our workers compensation attorneys have decades of experience handling these types of cases, and we remain abreast of the latest changes being made to Pennsylvania employment laws. We can easily help you navigate the entire process to make sure that you get the benefits you deserve. For answers to common workers compensation questions, click here.

Workers Compensation Client Testimonials
“Without Caroline Munley, I’m not sure where I would be. After cutting off the tip of my finger at my construction job, I was worried that my career would be at risk. But Ms. Munley reassured me that filing a workers comp claim doesn’t mean I would lose my job. She was with me every step of the way and helped me get back on my feet again. Now I’m back on the job and it’s all thanks to her help!”

“About 5 months ago, I had injured my back after lifting a heavy box at work. My employer refused to submit my claim even though the doctor had said the injury was caused by the action. I turned to Caroline Munley for help and I’m glad that I did. She walked me through filing my claim and helped me get the money to pay for my medical bills. I don’t know where I would be without her. Thank you, Ms. Munley!”
