Workers' Compensation in PA: Who Is Entitled to It

The Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act was created to ensure workers who have been legitimately injured on the job can receive benefits without having to file a civil suit against their employer. These benefits are paid out by your employer's insurance company. Everyone who is legally employed in Pennsylvania — including part-time and seasonal workers — qualifies for some form of PA workers' comp, no matter how long they have been on the job.

What You Are Entitled To

Pennsylvania workers' comp laws will cover your medical expenses, and it will cover a wage-compensation usually equivalent to two-thirds of your pre-accident pay if you are unable to return to work. Additionally, death or dismemberment benefits are available, as is extended medical care for occupational diseases that were incurred or aggravated by your employment.

How to Get the Results You Deserve

If you suffer a serious injury on the job that requires medical attention or an extended recovery period during which you are unable to work, hiring an attorney who knows how to file a workers' comp claim in Pennsylvania can help ensure you get a fair result that will not put you at financial risk.
