Pennsylvania's workers' compensation laws are designed to ensure that employees who are hurt at work or disabled on the job are reimbursed for job-related medical expenses, hospital bills, and lost wages during recovery time. Workers' compensation (WC) covers all injuries related to a worker's job, whether they result from an accident or are caused by other working-related circumstances.

Even though your employer is required to follow the law when it comes to workers' compensation for an injured employee, they often don't. The process of collecting your benefits for lost wages, medical expenses, and more can be complicated, confusing, and even intimidating. If you've been hurt at work, it can be challenging to navigate the workers' compensation system on your own without a workers' comp lawyer on your side.
You should contact a workers' comp lawyer as soon as possible after a workplace injury to protect your rights and get the compensation you deserve!

As we covered in our article—How to File for Workers' Compensation in PA—beginning the workers' comp claims process equals informing your employer about your illness or injury as soon as possible (within 120 days). That action on your part will kick off the claims filing process with the PA Bureau of Workers' Compensation—which is your employer's responsibility—so you can focus on getting needed medical care.
WC insurance carriers have 21 days following notification to accept or deny a claim. While you are waiting to hear back, it may be the perfect time to discuss your case with one of our experienced workers' comp lawyers.
Westmoreland Injury Lawyers is here to help our neighbors in Western Pennsylvania navigate all aspects of the workers' compensation process, including answering all of your WC questions. Additionally, many people don't realize that you don't have to be injured in an accident at work to receive workers' compensation benefits. You may be entitled to workers' comp and not even know it.
Contact us today to learn more.
Workers' compensation benefits cover all of the following work-related injuries and conditions, and more:
In far too many instances, your employer or their workers' comp insurance company may deny your claim. There are various reasons why your workers' compensation claim may have been denied, but you do have options for pursuing your claim and possibly having the denial reversed.
As soon as you receive a workers' comp denial, your best course of action is to engage an experienced workers' comp lawyer to help you pursue the benefits you may rightfully deserve. Without an approved claim, neither your employer nor their insurance company is required to pay any of your medical bills, pay your wage loss, or—most importantly—accommodate any physical limitations you may have when you return to work. Don't lose your benefits without a fight.

In 2018, the maximum weekly compensation for lost wages in PA was $1,025 or 66 2/3 percent of wages at the time of an injury. Timeframes for collecting compensation vary depending on the level of disability. You may also be entitled to a lump sum.
Temporary Total Disability: Your condition is temporary, and you'll be able to go back to work—maximum of 90 days.
Permanent Partial Disability: You are 49 percent or less disabled, can recover within 90 days, but cannot resume your previous activities—partially lost wage benefits for 500 weeks.
Permanent Total Disability: You are 50 percent disabled and unable to go back to work—indefinite.
If you are unable to work following your experience as an injured employee, Social Security Disability benefits may come into play. Let us help you navigate SSD/SSDI or SSI programs, too.
