Added 5/15/2016 - Dixon v. WCAB (Medrad, Inc.) - This case shows that an injured employees wage loss benefits can be stopped even if he/she has restrictions because of his/her injury. In this case the insurers own doctor said the claimant had work restrictions. The employer offered the claimant a job which it said was within the restrictions. Because the claimant failed to follow through, in good faith, with the job offer his benefits were suspended, which means his wage loss benefits were stopped even though he was not actually working. This is a suspension based upon a claimant's bad faith refusal to accept a job. Click on the case title to read the whole case.
The Court Held that if an employee does not notify the UEGF within 45 days from the date of his/her injury, then the UEGF is not responsible for any medical bills or wage loss payments until the date it received notice of the claim. The UEGF exists to cover injured employees of employers that do not carry workers' compensation insurance. It is a violation of law for an Employer not to carry workers' comp insurance, but in the rare case that this happens the UEGF is supposed to cover the claim.
Bob was injured on the job as a construction worker. It appeared his employer did not have workers' compensation insurance, which is illegal under Pennsylvania Law. As a result Bob contacted Attorney Joseph Vendetti to get legal advice about his claim. Attorney Joseph Vendetti filed Bob's claim against the Under Insured Employer Guarantee Fund (UEGF) as well as several statutory employers that could have been responsible for Bob's workers' compensation benefits. Attorney Vendetti was able to amicably resolve Bob's claim and get him the wage loss and medical benefits he was entitled to under Pennsylvania Law.
