Workers Compensation Laws & Settlement in Pennsylvania
In case you were unaware, filing a claim for workers compensation can be frustrating, and overwhelming. Having someone with experience and knowledge of workers compensation laws in Pennsylvania will ease the frustration of filing a worker compensation claim. The goal for every case is to provide our clients with high quality legal service so that a settlement may be possible.
Workers' Compensation Act
The Pennsylvania Worker's Compensation Act provides that all employers, including non-profit organizations, must issue workers compensation insurance for all employees. This includes full-time employees, part-time employees, and seasonal employees (but not contractors). Timing plays a big part in filing a claim. Illnesses that occur from exposure to certain materials such as asbestos or benzenes are covered under the Worker's Compensation Act. Such exposures can lead to lifetime disability or even death. Under the Worker's Compensation Act, work-loss benefits and medical benefits may be covered. Death benefits are usually paid to the dependent survivors if the death occurred from a work related injury or illness. Having to deal with a trauma such as a work related injury that leaves a person disabled is devastating. Having someone to fight for that worker's rights can make the adjustment to everyday life somewhat easier so that the worker can focus on becoming well again.
