What Employees Should Know About Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation claims should be filed as soon as possible after an employee is injured on the job. These employees go to work expecting to go home at the end of the day without incident, but that is not always the case. Someone who is hurt at work must take steps to file a report, receive the medical care they need, file an insurance claim, follow up, and receive the workers’ compensation coverage that is needed.

Although workers’ compensation insurance should be provided to employees under Pennsylvania law, there could be exceptions. An employer usually avoids direct liability in almost all cases, but cases can be complicated by insurance companies and any investigations that may be initiated.

Injured employees can receive a wide range of coverage that will help them recover, get back to work or even learn a new vocation. If you’ve been injured at work, you should speak to a workers’ compensation lawyer as soon as possible for help filing an injury report or to start the legal process of filing a claim.
