Finding that Uhlenhake failed to establish a connection
between the knee injury and a compensable event, the court upheld the denial of
workers’ compensation for injury to his left knee. Uhlenhake’s ability to
recover would have been enhanced if he had provided timely notice of the
injury. Generally, an injured employee must provide timely notice to his or her
employer and file a claim within the time frame established by the relevant
workers’ compensation statute. See Pittsburgh Steelers Sports, Inc. v. Workers’
Comp. Appeal Bd., 814 A.2d 788 (Pa. Commw. Ct. 2002) (notification of injury
given to team trainer is sufficient to meet statutory notice requirements for workers’
compensation).
