Bethlehem workers compensation lawyers explain workers comp benefits

If you are injured on the job in Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Workers Compensation Act covers you. This law defines an employer’s responsibility regarding paying damages for injuries during employment and provides for wage loss benefits until you can work again. Private insurance companies or the State Workers Insurance Fund pay these benefits.  Almost every worker is covered by workers compensation, as all employers must provide coverage for every employee.

- Medical care benefits — The Act requires every employer to notify all employees regarding workers compensation medical benefits. Medical benefits include “reasonable” surgical and medical services. Workers comp covers medicines, supplies, hospital costs and related expenses.

- Wage-loss benefits — Wage-loss benefits include both partial and permanent disability.

- Specific-loss benefits — If you lose permanent use of your extremities, senses or have a serious and permanent disfigurement , you can claim specific-loss benefits.

- Death benefits — Sometimes referred to as “wrongful death”, these benefits go to survivors.

Some employees are covered under other specific workers compensation coverage. These include federal employees, railroad workers, longshoremen, shipmen and harbor workers. Volunteer workers, agricultural laborers or casual laborers may not be covered by workers compensation. Speak with our experienced workers compensation attorney if you have questions regarding your status.

If there workers compensation is covered by law, why do I need an attorney?

Generally an employer’s insurance company covers your workers compensation costs. Your employer may have broken workers compensation law and without an attorney you may not be aware of any infraction.

Insurance companies try to limit pay-outs. They may use unscrupulous means to get avoid their responsibilities.  They may also hire a “medical case manager” to collect information on you. Some of their requests are legal, such as requesting an independent medical evaluation. Some are not. The best way to protect yourself, is to hire your own counsel.

Moreover, both your employer and the insurance company have attorneys looking out for them, that’s why you need us to stand up for your best interests.
