How to File for Workers’ Compensation in PA

Were you injured at work and unsure what to do next? Suffering a work injury or illness can be devastating and usually takes you by surprise. The good news is that if you work in Pennsylvania, you are most likely protected by workers’ compensation and can receive benefits.

Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation System

The Pennsylvania workers’ compensation system is a statewide, no-fault insurance system designed to provide compensation for medical expenses and lost wages to workers injured on the job. Almost all Pennsylvania employers are required to have workers’ compensation insurance, with a few exceptions. Employees are covered by their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance from the first day on the job and are covered for nearly any injury that occurs while they are engaged in a work activity. Additionally, employees do not need to prove that their employer or co-worker contributed to the accident. In return, injured employees give up their right to sue their employer.

Unless you’ve filed a workers’ compensation claim before, you may not know how to go about the process. The Philadelphia workers’ compensation lawyers at Larry Pitt & Associates provide this infographic listing the steps to file for workers’ compensation in Pennsylvania.
