If you have been hurt on the job, you know firsthand the physical, social, and financial challenges associated with a work injury in Pennsylvania. It can affect all areas of your life, from interactions with family members to the ability to pursue future career goals or lifelong dreams.
The workers’ compensation system in Pennsylvania is intended to lessen your financial burdens, so you can focus your efforts on getting better. Whether you were injured at your place of employment, in a vehicle, or elsewhere, you may be entitled to benefits under Pennsylvania workers’ compensation as long as your injury occurred in the context of work (at your place of employment or while performing work-related tasks).
Workers’ compensation benefits include financial compensation for medical expenses, lost wages due to time away from work, and other related costs. If you have lost a loved one due to a work injury, benefits under Pennsylvania workers’ comp. could also be available to you and your family.
