Know Your Rights: Can You Claim Worker’s Compensation?

shutterstock 410940079 (1) Your job is how you earn your living and provide for those closest to you. As such, when that job could potentially put your health in jeopardy, worker’s compensation is there to ensure that you’ll receive just worker’s compensation for at least wage loss and medical costs.  However, seeking worker’s compensation can often hit troublesome roadblocks and be railroaded with underhanded legalese.  So, if you need a strong advocate to help you get the compensation you deserve, Lenahan & Dempsey, P.C. is here to help.

Claim Your Worker’s Compensation With Confidence

In Pennsylvania, worker’s compensation is mandatory for employers to provide for their employees. Here are a few reasons to assist you in claiming worker’s compensation:

  • You got hurt at work — To qualify for worker’s compensation, you must have suffered a disabling injury while within the course and scope of your job.
  • Report your injury to your boss within 120 days from when it occurred – To qualify for Pennsylvania worker’s compensation, in addition to suffering a work-related disabiling injury,  you must also provide notice to your employer about the work injury within 120 days from its occurrence or from when you knew the condition was work-related.
  • Who is eligible for worker’s compensation? – Not every worker in Pennsylvania is automatically entitled to worker’s compensation.  Call Lenahan & Dempsey, P.C. to verify if you are eligible.

Though Pennsylvania law dictates that your employer is obligated to provide you with your due and just worker’s compensation (unless your profession is ineligible as described above), there might be added benefits that you are eligible to receive.
