What Types of Workers Compensation Benefits Are Available?

June 21, 2013

Under Pennsylvania workers compensation law, a person injured in the course of their employment can expect to be compensated by their employer for:

  • Medical expenses — You can claim compensation for reasonable surgical and medical treatment by a physician or other health professional, medicine, hospital stays and/or orthopedic devices
  • Lost income — If you are unable to earn at the same level as before the injury, you can claim back up to two-thirds of your average weekly income
  • Specific loss — Even if your injury does not cause you to take time off work, if you lose the use of certain body parts or suffer serious disfigurement, you can claim compensation
  • Death — If the employee dies in the course of employment, the surviving dependents are entitled to a percentage of the deceased’s weekly wage, depending on the circumstances, as well as a contribution towards the cost of the deceased’s funeral
