Who is Covered?

Depending on the type of position you have and the circumstances of your accident, you may be covered under Pennsylvania’s workers’ compensation laws. At our firm, we know that certain workers are more likely to make these types of claims – workers such as:

The most important part of eligibility lies in why you were in the car. For example, if you were simply commuting to work, you cannot collect workers’ compensation in Pennsylvania because you were not “on the clock” when the accident happened.

Challenges for Employees Making a Claim After a Work-Related Motor Vehicle Accident

If you are in an especially serious car accident, you may want to file a third-party lawsuit against the driver who hit you, in order to cover any medical expenses that workers’ compensation benefits do not. A third-party personal injury claim is known as subrogation. However, if the driver who caused the accident is uninsured or underinsured, you may face some difficulties recovering additional compensation. Under Pennsylvania law, you can still collect benefits even if the driver is not fully insured. You may benefit significantly by enlisting the aid of an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer to help you through the process, as there are certain exclusions in policies that may or may not apply.

If your injury is serious enough to require several independent medical examinations (IMEs), there could be conflicting information sent to your insurance company and your employer, which can jeopardize your benefits as well. It is these types of challenges that the law firm of Larry Pitt & Associates, P.C. handles so well. We can anticipate any problems that might arise and address them right away. Our experience in the areas of Social Security Disability, workers’ compensation, and personal injury make us an ideal choice for helping you obtain compensation or benefits through other means as well.
