The Benefits of Workers' Compensation

Workers’ compensation provides a wide range of benefits to employees who are injured or become ill due to their job. Before the introduction of workers’ compensation insurance, injured employees had to sue their employers to obtain financial compensation for their medical treatment. A dedicated Bristol, Penn workers’ compensation lawyer can help you navigate the claims process to ensure you obtain the benefits you need to recover from your injuries and rebuild your life.

Taking Care of Medical Bills

One of the most important and popular benefits of workers’ compensation is that it covers your medical expenses. For the first 90 days after your accident, you must obtain medical treatment from your employer’s designated medical provider. Whether it’s doctor visits, medication, or surgery, the Bristol workers’ compensation lawyers at Win Big Law will ensure you get the medical care you need to recover.

Paying Lost Wages

You can seek wage replacement benefits if you cannot work because of your injury. If you can only return to work at light duty capacity and experience a loss of income, you can claim temporary partial disability (TPD) benefits which pays 2/3rds of the difference between your post-injury and pre-injury wages. Workers’ compensation also provides temporary total disability (TTD) benefits which pays 2/3rds of your pre-injury average weekly wage.

Retraining for a New Career

If your injury prevents you from returning to your old job, but you can work in some capacity, you can undergo vocational rehabilitation. Pennsylvania law requires your employers’ workers’ compensation insurance to prove you are no longer totally disabled. You will then meet with a vocational rehabilitation expert who will assist you in finding new employment which can accommodate your health restrictions.

Permanent Disability Benefits

If your injury is severe and permanent, workers’ compensation can provide benefits to help you cope with the long-term effects. This can include financial compensation as well as medical care and rehabilitation. A permanency award is based on the portion of your body which was injured and the extent of your permanency.

Benefits For Mortal Injuries

In the unfortunate event of your or a loved one’s death due to a work-related injury, workers’ compensation provides death benefits to the surviving family members. Specifically, workers’ compensation insurance provides financial compensation for lost wages and funeral and burial expenses. The amount of money your family receives is based on their relationship with you and the number of your children.

Some employees suffer from job-related illnesses. Many illnesses and conditions are covered under Pennsylvania law. Additionally, Pennsylvania law also presumes a disease to be job-related if an injured employee works in an industry in which the disease is a known industry hazard.

What to Do to Win Big

You can do many things after an accident that can increase the strength of your workers' compensation claim. Insurance companies work fast to find reasons to deny claims or build defenses. Following your accident, you should:

  • Obtain medical treatment for your injuries
  • Notify your employer of the accident
  • Photograph the location of the accident
  • Identify possible witnesses
  • Do not talk to your employer's insurance company
  • Contact a Bristol, Pennsylvania workers' compensation lawyer

The first step to getting the compensation you deserve is to notify your employer about your injury. Under Pennsylvania law, you must report the accident within 120 days, or your right to file a workers’ compensation is barred. Our Bristol, Pennsylvania civil litigation lawyers can help you navigate this process and ensure your rights are protected.

Once you’ve notified your employer, the next step is to file a PA LIBC-100 Claim Form. This is the formal process of opening your claim. At Win Big Law, our personal injury lawyers can help you understand the process and ensure your form is properly prepared and filed.

It is important to be seen by a doctor as soon as possible after your injury. While you may want to see your own doctor, you must obtain treatment from your employer’s doctor for the 90 days following your accident. After these 90 days, the knowledgeable workers’ compensation lawyers at Win Big Law can help you find a qualified physician who can properly document and treat your injury.

Many injured employees fail to consult a workers’ compensation attorney after an accident. Our personal injury lawyers can help you navigate the process and win big. If you are ready to take the next step in getting the compensation you deserve, reach out to us today for a free consultation.
