How Can I Receive Workers’ Compensation in Pennsylvania?
Employees who are injured on the job are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ comp generally covers medical expenses and two-thirds of lost wages. However, employers and workers’ compensation insurance companies may try to limit, delay or deny the compensation you are entitled to. Whether your injury has left you temporarily or permanently disabled or you have been denied the workers’ comp benefits you deserve, it is important to have an experienced workers’ compensation attorney protecting your rights.
The insurance company may be in a hurry to get you back to work before you are medically ready to return or deny you wage benefits. If so, you need an attorney who will investigate your claim and get you the benefits to which you are entitled.
Third-Party Liability in Workers’ Compensation Claims
If your workplace injury was caused by the negligence of a third party, you may also pursue a third-party personal injury claim. A third party is a person or entity other than your employer or a fellow employee — a contractor or equipment manufacturer, for instance. Filing a third-party claim allows you to pursue compensation for damages that are not covered under workers’ compensation law and thus significantly increases your total potential compensation.
