Has Your Workers' Compensation Claim Been Denied?
After applying for benefits, you waited and waited, only to receive notice of a denied workers' compensation claim. The process does not have to end there.
At Abes Baumann, our lawyers have served injured workers in Pittsburgh and throughout western Pennsylvania since 1981. We know how to proceed after a comp claim has been denied. We will fight for you.
Fighting to Get You Workers' Compensation
After a denied claim has been received, the next step is litigation. During this process, we will work hard to prove that you suffered a workplace injury and to prove that you have the right to wage loss compensation and medical benefits under workers' comp law.
Our first step in the fight is to put together your case. This means gathering the evidence to prove your disability. Once this has been completed, we will file a claim petition with the Bureau of Workers' Compensation. A hearing date will be set.
At this hearing, you may be called to testify about your injury. Doctors may testify about your condition by deposition. Often, success hinges more on how you present yourself at the hearing than on what the two doctors have to say.
Helping You Get More Than Just Compensation
If you present yourself as someone who wants to move forward, it can make a big difference at the hearing. More importantly, it can make a big difference in your life.
Our lawyers are committed to doing what is right for you. This means working with the office of vocational rehabilitation to help you see the light at the end of the tunnel. We want to help you get the compensation you deserve now, and we also want you to have the tools you need to move forward.

The majority of workers' comp cases are handled on a contingency basis. This means that you will not be held responsible for any fees unless our attorneys are successful in getting you compensation.
