Attorney fees, interest and penalties are all a possibility. There are many ways an insurer can violate the WC Act. If they do violate the Act or unreasonably deny your claim, they can be forced to pay your fees. Honestly, the rules for a reasonable contest have become so loose for the insurers that they infrequently have to pay – sometimes it is the facts, sometimes it is the judge.
