Workers’ Compensation claim denied?
When your claim has been denied, it can be easy to lose heart and give up. But that doesn’t mean it’s over. Abes Baumann is here to help you explore all of your options. If your claim is denied, the next step is to establish your case, gathering evidence to prove your disability. We then file a claim with the Pennsylvania Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.
When your claim goes into litigation, there will be a hearing, where a judge will listen to your testimony. Judges may decide your claim based on your attitude toward your recovery and eventual return to the workforce. We’ll help you find a doctor and even get your medical bills in order. At Abes Baumann, we know that your needs are bigger than a claim.Contact us for a free consultation.
Can I get a lump sum settlement?
One of the choices available to an injured worker is to settle for a lump sum. At Abes Baumann, we believe in finding the right solution, not just the easiest. There are times a lump sum settlement makes sense for you. And times when it doesn’t.
Workers’ Compensation claims normally involve medical benefits for the worker. Unfortunately, many companies will want injured workers to give up medical benefits as part of a lump sum resolution. If you have an injury that may require care over the course of years, this might not be the best long-term solution. Whatever the situation, our more than 200 years of combined experience will help us figure out the right solution for you.Contact us for a free consultation.

You came here to work, and got injured. But you live out of state. Your employer is trying to tell you that you have to file in your home state, but you’re not sure. We’re here to help you sort through the complexities of your case. We’ll determine which state is best for you.
During the tough time following an injury, it’s important that you have clear-headed, independent guidance. Work with an Abes Baumann attorney, and you’ll never feel like you’re in the dark.Contact us for a free consultation.
Are your benefits being challenged or changed?
It can be startling to discover that, after your claim has been accepted, your company is trying to change or stop your benefits. Maybe you’ve been sent to the company doctor for an exam, and you’re wondering why. Perhaps you’ve been contacted by a “Vocational Expert.” If that’s the case, your employer may be trying to change or terminate your benefits.
At Abes Baumann, we understand that, in an ideal world, your company’s priorities and your priorities would be the same. But the truth is that your company wants to save money, your benefits are costing them, and they tend to have a powerful legal team behind them.
We’re here to help. A “Vocational Expert,” hired by the insurance company, will evaluate your situation, trying to show that you are capable of finding other, lighter work, and that you should stop receiving benefits. If this happens, you should contact us immediately to protect yourself.Contact us for a free consultation.
