The Law at Work for You

The Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act (2010) provides benefits to workers injured on the job or who have an occupational disease regardless of who was at fault. However, you must act quickly to report your claim to your employer. Pennsylvania law says that you must notify your employer within 120 days after the work-related injury, illness, or disease or it will be too late to file your claim.

Workers' Compensation Benefits:

• Weekly Compensation to the Disabled Worker
• Reasonable, Necessary, & Related Hospital, Surgical, & Medical
• Specific Loss Benefits for Loss of Use of Extremities & Other Such
Death Benefits & Burial Expenses to a Deceased Worker's Dependents
• Death Benefits & Burial Expenses to a Deceased Worker's Dependents

Ability to Work Notice

The law also allows employers to attempt to send you back to work after your work injury if the employer's doctor releases you to go back to work. However, if you or your doctor do not believe you are able to return to work, you have the right to challenge this attempt by your employer.

If you are receiving workers' compensation benefits and you receive a Notice of Ability to Return to Work form, you should immediately contact a lawyer to discuss your situation. Do not wait until it is too late.

Settle Your Workers' Claim

The law also allows you to settle your workers' compensation claim with your employer after a judge approves such settlement. If interested in settling your claim once and for all, contact our office for a free consultation to weigh the pros and cons as we discover what it may be worth to you.
