What is Workers' Compensation?

Before the passage of the Pennsylvania workers’ compensation act, an employee in Norristown who suffered an occupational injury faced the nearly impossible task of suing their employer for financial compensation. Workers’ compensation is a type of no-fault insurance, meaning you can still seek benefits even if your negligence caused your injuries. Specifically, workers’ compensation provides extensive benefits to employees injured or ill due to their job.

Eligibility Requirements for Workers Compensation

Retaining an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer is integral to navigating the complexity of your case. To be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits in Pennsylvania, you must be an employee as defined by Pennsylvania law. Further, your injury must have occurred while you were in the course of your employment. While workers’ compensation is not fault based, you may be precluded from obtaining benefits if your injury resulted from your being intoxicated or committing an illegal act.

The 4 Types of Workers' Compensation Claims in PA

The benefits provided by workers’ compensation are generous and expansive. These benefits are designed to provide injured employees with financial stability if they cannot work along with assisting with their recovery. As a result of the generous and expensive nature of these benefits, workers’ compensation insurance companies often fight valid claims, which is why representation by an experienced workers’ compensation attorney is essential.

Permanent Disability Benefits

If your injury or illness results in permanent disability, you may be eligible for permanent disability benefits. Specifically, Pennsylvania law allows you to seek monetary compensation for the portion of your body which was injured. The amount of money you can claim is based on the amount of money you earned before your injury and the degree of your injury.

Lost Wages (Indemnity)

Depending on the degree of your injury, you may be precluded from returning to work or may only be able to return to work at a light-duty capacity. If your injuries prevent you from working, workers’ compensation insurance provides temporary total disability (TTD) benefits which will pay you 2/3rds of your pre-injury wage. If you can only return to work at a light-duty capacity and subsequently earn less money, workers’ compensation insurance provides temporary partial disability (TPD) benefits which replaces 2/3rd of your lost income.

Medical Bills

People often avoid seeking medical treatment because they do not want to incur excessive medical expenses. Under Pennsylvania law, workers’ compensation will cover your medical bills for treating your injury. However, you must treat with one of six medical providers selected by your employer for the first 90 days following your accident,

Death Benefits

You may be eligible for death benefits if a loved one has died due to a work-related injury or illness. Under Pennsylvania law, you can seek workers’ compensation benefits to replace your loved one’s lost wages. Additionally, you can obtain workers’ compensation benefits for funeral and burial expenses.

How do I File a Claim for Workers' Compensation in Pennsylvania?

The process of filing a workers’ compensation claim is relatively simple. You must report your injury to your employer. You must then file a LIBC-100 form and seek medical treatment. While the process is relatively simple, employers and insurance carriers often complicate the process, which is why you should immediately consult a PA workers’ compensation attorney following your injury.

Additionally, they often hire ruthless defense attorneys who search for reasons to contest otherwise valid claims.

Insurance Companies Have More Resources Than You

At Win Big Law, our workers’ compensation lawyers have the resources to fight back.

How Were You Injured on the Job?

While extensive State and Federal laws govern workplace safety, workplace accidents occur with alarming frequency. According to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor, 6,487 workers’ compensation claims were made in Montgomery County in 2021. Sadly, these workplace injury claims were not limited to physical injuries.

Occupational illnesses

Occupational Illnesses

People often make the mistake of assuming workers’ compensation only covers physical injuries. Under Pennsylvania law, you can seek workers’ compensation benefits for an occupational illness and disease. Further, Pennsylvania law presumes an occupational illness and disease is presumed to be work-related if you were employed in an industry with a history of diseases being an occupational hazard.

Musculoskeletal injuries

Broken Bones, Sprained Joints

Employees often suffer broken bones and sprained joints due to suffering falls, lifting heavy objects, or other accidents on the job. These injuries often require medical attention and may prevent an employee from working for a period of time. Severe injuries may require an employee to receive physical therapy and orthopedic care.

Traumatic injuries

Head Trauma, Contusions, or Laceration

Employees who experience severe physical impacts can also suffer head injuries, contusions, and lacerations. Minor injuries may require medical treatment and time off from work to recover. Employees who suffer severe head injuries may require neurological care.

Mental health conditions

Mental Health Suffering

Similar to occupational illnesses, workers’ compensation also covers claims for psychological injuries. Specifically, you can seek benefits if you develop a mental health condition due to physical injury or work-related stress. Additionally, you can seek workers’ compensation benefits for a bodily injury that develops as a result of work-related stress.

The Next Steps For Win Big to Fight for Your Workers Comp Claim

The time following a workplace accident is crucial. To improve the strength of your case, you should document the accident, identify witnesses, and document your injuries. Additionally, you must fulfill several procedural requirements to ensure your claim is accepted.

If you were injured on the job, you must report your injury to your employer immediately. Failure to report your injury promptly may result in your claim being denied. Specifically, Pennsylvania law requires you to report your injury to your employer within 120 days of your accident.

To file a claim for workers’ compensation in Pennsylvania, you must complete and file a LIBC-100 form. This form serves as the official notification to your employer and their insurance carrier of your workers’ compensation benefits. You should consult a Pennsylvania workers’ compensation attorney to ensure your form is properly filled out and filed promptly.

While you must see your employer’s doctor for the first 90 days following your accident, you should still seek medical treatment from your own medical provider following this period. Stated simply, your employer’s doctor may be biased. You will likely receive objective medical advice regarding your injuries and treatment from your medical provider.

Your employer does not want you to speak with an attorney. Stated simply, they do not want you to pursue a workers’ compensation claim and want you to remain ignorant of your legal rights. At Win Big Law Firm, we understand the complexities of the workers’ compensation system and can help you navigate the process to ensure you receive the benefits you deserve.

Industries and Jobs With a High Rate of Workers Compensation Claims

Workers’ compensation claims can arise in any industry or job. Some occupations have a higher-than-average risk of injury. Sadly, workers’ compensation insurance companies fight valid claims, which is why representation by an experienced PA workers’ compensation is essential for success.

Nurses and Healthcare Workers

Nurses and other healthcare workers face many risks in their day-to-day work. Specifically, nurses and healthcare care workers routinely face the risk of exposure to infectious diseases and workplace violence. Regrettably, these claims are common in Montgomery County as several of the area’s largest employers are hospitals.

Roofing Contractors

Roofing contractors often work at heights and with heavy equipment. This places them at high risk of suffering injuries due to falls. Additionally, roofers also face the risk of being hit by falling tools and equipment.

Manufacturing Worker Injuries

Manufacturing workers may be exposed to hazardous chemicals, machinery, and other dangerous conditions in their workplaces. Accordingly, these manufacturing workers are at high risk of serious injuries, which could permanently leave them disabled. Sadly, these types of injuries occur with alarming frequency, as seen by the fact that 20,361 manufacturing workers suffered injuries in 2021.

Delivery Warehouse Workers

Warehouses are dangerous places to work. Stated simply, warehouses feature the constant movement of large, heavy objects. Workers in delivery and warehousing jobs may be at risk of slips, falls, and injuries from heavy lifting and operating machinery.

Construction Workers

Similar to roofing contractors, construction workers face many hazards. Specifically, construction workers risk falling from heights, injuries from heavy equipment, and exposure to hazardous materials. In 2021, 8,979 workers’ compensation claims were made in Pennsylvania by construction workers.

Truck Drivers

Commercial truck drivers face harsh working conditions. They often spend long periods driving long distances in isolated conditions. Truck drivers are at risk of injury from accidents on the road, as well as injuries from loading and unloading cargo.
