Understanding workers compensation in the Lehigh Valley

Workers compensation is insurance which the Pennsylvania Workers Compensation Act requires most employers to provide. It generally covers all employees in the event of an accident. Even companies with only one employee fall under this requirement. Benefits usually fall under private insurance policies, unless your employer is the federal government or you work in certain, specific fields, such as railroads or as a longshoreman or dockworker. Employers may not have coverage for certain casual employees, volunteer workers or domestic workers.

Workers compensation coverage begins when an employee is hired, and the PA Workers Compensation Act requires employers to advise all workers of their rights and duties under the act.

What to do if I’ve been hurt on the job in Pennsylvania?

The most important thing to do if you are hurt at work, is to seek appropriate medical treatment immediately.

- Medical treatment —The Act requires employers to cover your medical treatment for an applicable workplace injury or illness. 

- Inform your employer — You must let your employer know that you have been injured as soon as possible. If you do so in writing, keep a copy for your records so you can demonstrate that you informed your employer, within the time limits.

- Keep records — Every time you see a doctor or have any kind of treatment or therapy, keep a copy for your records.

Witness accounts — If you have a witness to an accident, have the witness write an account of the incident.

If your injury results in a lost work day or shift, your employer must report the incident to the Bureau of Worker’ Compensation.
