Accepted Workers' Compensation Claims
Your Work Comp Claim Was Accepted – Now What?
If your Pennsylvania work comp claim is accepted, you'll probably feel a wave of relief. It may seem like a stressful, uncertain chapter of your life has closed. You assume that you can now focus on your health and getting better.
However, an approved claim doesn't mean it's the end of the road. When you get accepted to college, you still have exams and studying ahead of you. If your offer is accepted on a house, you have to pay bills and make repairs. "Accepted" sometimes just means the beginning of a new journey.
An approved workers' compensation claim can be followed by things like vocational interviews, petitions, appeals, hearings, and more. In any of these instances, it's in your best interest to talk to an experienced workers' compensation attorney right away.
