What is Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ compensation is a form of no-fault insurance. Specifically, workers’ compensation provides benefits to employees who are injured or become ill as a result of their job. Workers’ compensation insurance is no-fault, so you may still be eligible for benefits even if your negligence caused your injuries.
Eligibility Requirements for Workers’ Compensation in PA
To be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, you must be an employee, i.e., full-time, part-time, seasonal. Independent contractors and volunteers are generally not eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. You can claim workers’ compensation benefits if you suffered an injury while in the course of your employment.
The 4 Types of Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Claims
Before the passage of the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act, employees who could not work due to their injuries were forced to rely on their families and charity for economic support. Additionally, injured workers were previously responsible for their medical care. Workers’ compensation insurance provides numerous benefits which address these issues.
The Next Steps For Win Big Law to Fight for Your Workers’ Compensation Claim
If you have been injured on the job, there are several steps you should take to ensure you get the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve. You should obtain the names and contact information of co-workers who may have witnessed your accident. You should also avoid speaking with your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier without obtaining legal representation.
Report Your Injury To Your Employer
If you were injured on the job, it is important to report your injury to your employer as soon as possible. Pennsylvania law requires employees to notify their employers of their injuries within 120 days. If you fail to report your injury, your claim may be barred.
File a LIBC-100
To file a workers’ compensation claim in Pennsylvania, you must fill out a LIBC-100 form. This begins the formal process of your workers’ compensation case. At Win Big, our workers’ compensation attorneys can help you fill out and file this form correctly to ensure your claim is processed quickly and efficiently.
See Your Doctor
It is important to see your doctor as soon as possible after your injury to get a proper diagnosis. While you are legally required to treat with your employer’s doctor for the first 90 days following your accident, they may not provide you with an objective assessment of your injuries. Your own doctor can provide you with an objective opinion and documentation necessary for your workers’ compensation claim.
