What should you know about workers' compensation?

Millions of workers throughout the country, including in Pennsylvania, are employed in positions that come with an inherent level of risk each day on the job. Industrial and construction workers, for example, are seemingly more prone to suffer injuries in accidents that occur on-the-job. Public safety workers are oftentimes in the line of danger as well. When individuals are injured at work, the results can be hard to face alone. So, what should our readers in Pennsylvania know about workers' compensation?

For starters, it is important to understand that nearly every employee in Pennsylvania is likely eligible for workers' compensation benefits under certain circumstances, although there are some exceptions. For the most part, if you suffered an injury or contract an illness due to on-the-job responsibilities, you are likely eligible to receive workers' compensation benefits.

These benefits are intended to help offset the loss of wages that injured workers will experience when they are unable to return to work due to the injury or illness at issue. The financial benefits can last until the worker is ready to return to work.

Although it is obviously a good thing that Pennsylvania, like all other states, has a workers' compensation system in place, it isn't always easy to navigate the process of applying for and, ultimately, receiving these benefits. There are some basics for injured workers to know, but anyone who has been injured or who has contracted an illness on the job will likely benefit from getting more information about their own unique circumstances.
