In 2021 alone, 3,710 workers’ compensation claims were filed in Bucks County, which includes Bensalem, Penn. This number accounts for over 2% of the state’s total work-related injury claims — an unsurprising fact, considering the largest employers are hospitals and retailers.
If you’ve been injured in Bensalem, representation by a Pennsylvania workers’ compensation lawyer is crucial to obtaining the financial compensation to which you’re entitled. The workers’ compensation lawyers at Win Big Law are here for you — tell us your story.

The workers’ compensation process can be overwhelming and confusing, especially when dealing with a serious injury or illness. That’s where we come in.

We will work hard to get you the maximum financial compensation under the law.
What Workers' Compensation Covers
Under Pennsylvania workers’ compensation law, employers must provide their employees with workers’ compensation insurance. Additionally, Pennsylvania is a no-fault state, which means injured workers don’t have to prove their injuries were the employers’ fault — they can receive workers’ compensation benefits for any injury sustained while working. Workers’ compensation insurance protects workers in Bensalem and beyond from financial hardship after a workplace accident.
The Steps Towards Having Win Big to Fight for You
When it comes to workplace injuries, time is of the essence. There are specific actions you can take immediately following your injury to reinforce your workers' compensation claim and increase your chances of getting the damages you deserve. These actions include:
1. Document the accident in writing — the more detail, the better
2. Photograph your injuries and the area where the accident occurred
3. Record the names and contact information of anyone who witnessed the incident
4. Give the above information to your Bensalem, Pennsylvania workers' compensation attorney
The steps above are prudent but not legally necessary. Below is a detailed list of the legal actions you must take to file your workers' compensation claim.
Report Your Injury To Your Employer
Injuries sustained in the workplace must be reported to your employer immediately. It’s also prudent to speak with a Pennsylvania workers’ compensation lawyer as soon as possible. You have 120 days from the date of your injury to file a claim — after that point, your claim will be rejected.
File a LIBC-100
In the State of Pennsylvania, workplace injuries must be reported to the Pennsylvania Bureau of Workers’ Compensation via form LIBC-100. The form must be completed with the name and contact information of your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance provider. The workers’ compensation lawyers at Win Big Law Firm can help you file this form correctly.
Consult Your Doctor
After sustaining an injury, it’s essential to schedule a doctor’s appointment to obtain the proper care. Appointments that fall within the first 90 days after your injury must be with your employer’s designated medical provider. Once the 90-day period is over, you can schedule medical appointments with your preferred physician.
