When Pennsylvanians suffer a “work injury,” they are entitled to receive benefits under Pennsylvania’s Workers’ Compensation Act. These benefits consist of weekly disability income benefits, medical treatment and death benefits to surviving family members of workers killed on the job. The regulations contained in the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act are voluminous and usually quite complicated. Workers should strongly consider retaining legal counsel to represent them when filing a claim under the Act.
Injured workers should not rely upon their employer and its insurance carrier for assistance in applying for benefits. Rather, they need an attorney on their side who understands the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act, and all regulations contained therein.
