We will work hard to get you the maximum financial compensation under the law.
What Workplace Injuries And Job-Related Illnesses Are Covered?
The Pennsylvania workers’ compensation act covers a wide range of injuries and illnesses. Under Pennsylvania law, you have a compensable claim if you suffer a work injury while in the course of your employment. Additionally, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has also held employees have valid claims if their injuries are related to their employment.
How To Challenge a Suspension of Workers’ Compensation Benefits
If your workers’ compensation benefits have been suspended, you can move to have them reinstated if the reason for the suspension is no longer valid. You can also challenge a suspension for failing to attend a medical appointment if your employer or their workers’ compensation insurance company failed to actually authorize the appointment. Additionally, you can challenge a suspension for failing to attend medical treatment if you can show you actually attended medical treatment or were unable to attend for reasons beyond your control.
FAQs About Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Claims
It is natural to have questions about Pennsylvania’s workers’ compensation process. We are here to help you and your family. Here are answers to some of the most common questions we get:
Do I need representation if my claim was denied?
Employers and insurance companies deny claims for a variety of reasons. They frequently argue injuries did not occur while an employee was working in the course of their employment, were not work-related, or resulted from misconduct. Having an experienced attorney on your side can greatly improve your chances of success when your case is heard by a Workers’ Compensation Judge and throughout the appeals process.
May I consult my doctor?
The answer is “it depends.” Under Pennsylvania Law, you must treat with your employer’s medical provider if they have pre-designated doctors who are within reasonable traveling distance. However, after 90 days, you can choose your own healthcare provider.
How long are workers’ compensation benefits paid out?
The length of time workers’ compensation benefits are paid out will depend on the specific circumstances of your case and injury. If you are unable to work and rated as temporarily totally disabled, you can collect benefits for 104 weeks under Pennsylvania Law before your employer can request an Impairment Rating Evaluation to determine if you remain disabled. If you are rated as permanently partially disabled, you can collect benefits for up to 500 weeks under Pennsylvania Law.
Are part-time and seasonal workers covered?
Yes. Pennsylvania Law broadly defines the term “employee.” Workers’ compensation generally covers part-time and seasonal workers in Pennsylvania.
What kind of settlement can I expect?
The amount of your settlement will depend on various factors, including the severity of your injury or illness and your average weekly wage. Under Pennsylvania’s workers’ compensation law, your attorney can negotiate a lump-sum settlement if you are willing to forgo any future medical benefits for your injury permanently. You may also want to consider a structured settlement which pays money out over time if you have concerns regarding how your settlement will be taxed.
