Workers' Compensation Archives

Can I be forced to return to work after a workplace injury?

The type of benefits payable to an injured worker, and the conditions under which those payments are initiated and continued is a complex area of Pennsylvania law that is beyond the scope the overview provided by this post. The information provided in this post is not offered as legal advice, that should only be obtained from an attorney skilled in workers’ compensation law who might offer guidance when benefits are threatened.

Workers' compensation and returning to work: an overview

Many times, when we consider the topic of workers' compensation claims and benefits, the focus is on the entry stages of the claim process. Questions that usually come up include: What injuries may qualify for workers' compensation, how to file a claim and what to do if the employer's insurer resists the claim?

Oil and gas sites can pose air quality risks for workers

Pennsylvania is one of the states in the U.S. that has benefited from the resurgence of oil and natural gas production. But as is sometimes the case, the development of natural resources, particularly fossil fuels, can be a mixed blessing, especially for the workers at oil and natural gas fields.

What injuries qualify for Pennsylvania Worker's Compensation?

It is a given that Pennsylvania Worker's Compensation law generally protects employees who are injured during the course of their employment. The Pennsylvania Worker's Compensation Act ("the Act") contains within its provisions definitions of the types of injuries covered under the Act.

How Social Security and workers' compensation benefits coordinate

The existence of the dual system of federal and state governments can lead to overlapping coverage of some kinds of events that trigger the possible eligibility for benefits under their agencies and programs. One such possible interaction between the federal and state systems can be found in how Federal Social Security disability benefits work in parallel with Pennsylvania workers' compensation benefits.

Can I sue a co-worker who injures me in a workplace accident?

As a general rule, if you are the victim of a job-related injury or illness then your medical expenses, lost wages and other compensation to which you might be entitled will be paid to you under provisions of the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act.

Misclassification of employees can be workers’ compensation fraud

Some employers try to avoid paying for employee benefits, including workers’ compensation, by misclassifying their workers as independent contractors.  The law in Pennsylvania distinguishes between benefits that the employer must carry for its employees and those classified as independent contractors.

When do workers’ compensation benefits payments begin and end?

If you have been injured at work, one of the main issues you may be concerned with is when your wage payments will start. A follow-up concern may be how long the payments will continue. After all, you may not be out of work for just a few days, but it could be months or years.

All work injuries not created equal

The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act covers a wide range of accidents at work, including serious illnesses or a fall directly caused by the environment. This legislation ensures that victims receive the workers’ compensation benefits to which they are entitled for their injuries. Local victims of work accidents in Philadelphia and the rest of the state may be able to receive compensation when represented by legal counsel.

We know how workers' compensation works, even if you don't

There are certain things  you can possess that give you peace of mind, because you know that if something bad happens you have resources to deal with it: a fire extinguisher in the kitchen or a burglar alarm in your home, for example.
