Workers Compensation Attorney Authors Article for The Legal Intelligencer on Unreasonable Contest Attorney Fees

November 2, 2018

Our Pennsylvania workers’ compensation attorney Marianne H. Saylor authored an article in The Legal Intelligencer’s recent Workers’ Compensation supplement that focused on pursuing unreasonable contest attorney fees in workers’ compensation cases.

The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act provides that an employer shall be responsible for the payment of attorney fees when it fails to establish a reasonable basis for its contest of a workers’ compensation claim. Despite this provision, attorneys for claimants rarely request attorney fees from the judge or demand them during negotiations to settle claims. 

In her article, Saylor argues as to why claimants’ attorneys should begin to routinely utilize this overlooked benefit to increase the value of claimants’ recovery and why employers’ attorneys should be more alert to their clients’ exposure for unreasonable contest attorney fees.
