In the state of Pennsylvania, if your workers’ compensation claim is denied, you have the right to file an appeal. The appeals process can be complex and requires a deep understanding of the law, but essentially, it involves challenging the decision made by the Workers’ Compensation Judge assigned to your case.
The first step in the appeal process is to file an appeal with the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Appeal Board no later than 20 calendar days from the Circulation Date of the Judge’s Decision. The Circulation Date is on the front page of the Judge’s Decision. This appeal should specifically outline why you believe the Judge’s Decision was incorrect.
Once your appeal has been filed, both you, as the Claimant and the Employer and their Workers’ Compensation Insurance Company will have the opportunity to present both oral arguments and written briefs in support of your respective positions.
If the Workers’ Compensation Appeal Board (WCAB) agrees with the Workers’ Compensation Judge’s Decision, you can file a further appeal to the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania which must be filed within 30 calendar days from the Appeal Board’s Decision. The Commonwealth Court will then issue a written Decision after reviewing all of the submitted evidence.
If the Commonwealth Court does not issue a Decision in your favor, one last appeal can be filed with the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. A Petition for Allowance of Appeal must be filed no later than 30 calendar days from the Commonwealth Court’s Decision. It is up to the Supreme Court to decide whether or not to hear a case. If the Supreme Court will not hear the case, the Commonwealth Court’s Decision is final.
