What Can One Of The Top
And the process to get these medical bills paid and get a check for lost pay would be a smooth process.
But in Pennsylvania, that is not always the case.
Every year, thousands of Pennsylvania workers struggle to pay bills, and even put food on the table after they were injured on the job….because the Pennsylvania Workers Comp system is a confusing maze of rules, delays and loopholes.

Pennsylvania Workers Compensation Details
If you have been injured at work, you know that work injuries affect not only your physical condition, but also can limit your daily activities, as well as your ability to perform on-the-job tasks or at-home activities.
In fact, you may be unable to work for an extended period of time after sustaining an injury. No matter how your work-related injury occurred or how much time you need away from your job to recover, Pennsylvania employers are required to have workers’ compensation insurance to cover your medical expenses and compensation for lost wages.
Under Pennsylvania workers’ compensation law, every employee is entitled to benefits for injuries that occur in the course and scope of employment. Perhaps you have arrived on this site because you or a loved one sustained a work injury in Pennsylvania and have one of the following questions:
- Am I eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim?
- Do I need an attorney in order to file a workers’ compensation claim?
- My workers’ compensation claim was denied. Can you help me?
- My workers’ compensation checks are late. What can I do?
- I am already on workers’ compensation, but the insurer is denying my prescriptions at the pharmacy. What should I do?
- What do I do when my medical treatment bills are denied or I cannot obtain pre-approval for treatment?
- How do I keep my workers’ compensation benefits when the employer/insurer tries to modify, reduce, or terminate my workers’ compensation?
- How much is my case worth for settlement purposes?
As Central Pennsylvania workers’ compensation lawyers, Calhoon & Associates are dedicated to serving clients with a number of work-related needs. A key step in helping clients is educating injured workers. First, it is important to note how workers’ compensation is unique. Unlike other types of injury cases, work-related injuries do not have to result from the negligence or fault of you or another party. Regardless of how your on-the-job accident occurred, your resulting injury constitutes a legal claim if it occurred in the context of work. You are not required to have an attorney in order to file a claim, but many injured workers enlist the help of an experienced Harrisburg workers’ compensation lawyer in order to avoid common mistakes in a complex area of the law and to prepare for future challenges. However, if you simply want free information and answers to questions, including those listed above, visit the firm’s workers’ compensation practice area page.
If you would like to speak personally to us about your work injury or benefits, please fill out our confidential online contact form or call Calhoon & Associates toll-free at 1-877-291-WORK (or 9675). Whether you wish to begin the claims process, have been denied workers’ compensation benefits, or are encountering problems while on workers’ compensation, Calhoon & Associates will fight to obtain the benefits you are entitled to receive.
