Getting injured on the job can be one of the most stressful experiences you can go through. Injured workers often find themselves quickly overwhelmed by an avalanche of confusing paperwork and non-stop phone calls from the employer and their insurance company. To make matters worse, employers frequently give injured workers advice that seems like a good idea, but in reality, it’s what’s best for their bottom line.
Almost every worker in Pennsylvania is covered by the Workers’ Compensation Act. This law provides injured workers with a range of benefits, including wage loss and payment of medical bills for treating work injuries. That means that if you’ve been hurt on the job, you could very well be eligible for benefits.
Even though the law provides injured workers with benefits, employers and their insurance companies often try to pay as little as possible. That can mean trying to rush injured workers back to work before they are fully recovered, paying fewer benefits than you are entitled, or sometimes not paying any benefits at all. Unfortunately for workers, the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation system and its laws can be difficult to understand and navigate. That means employers and insurance companies often start at an advantage, using their significant resources to get a leg up on injured employees.
