How Long Does My Employer Have to Accept or Deny My Claim?

Once you give notice of your injury, the employer has twenty-one days to accept, deny, or temporarily accept your claim. Many employers/insurers in Pennsylvania, however, do not file anything. This gives you a right to file a Penalty Petition for violating the Act.
