Work-Related Injuries


Almost all types of workplace injuries may be compensated under Pennsylvania’s Workers’ Compensation Act, from carpal tunnel syndrome to amputation. If you contract an illness because of working conditions at your place of employment, you may also be entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits.

What Types Of Work Injuries Are Covered By Workers’ Compensation?

Most common workplace injuries are covered by Workers’ Compensation, which requires your employer to pay medical bills and reimburse you for lost wages if you are hurt on the job. Common injuries include:

 Even if your condition is not listed here, it is worth your time to discuss your situation with our work injury lawyers in Philadelphia. We may be able to help you obtain benefits even if you do not have one of the conditions mentioned on this page.

What Types Of Injuries Are Not Covered By Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ Compensation injury benefits may be available even if the injury was caused by carelessness on the part of the employee or employer. However, you may not be entitled to Workers’ Compensation injury benefits if:

  • You were drunk or under the influence of illegal drugs when the injury occurred
  • You inflicted the injury on yourself or started a fight that led to the injury
  • You were on the premises but not “on the job” when the injury occurred
  • The injury occurred while you were violating a company policy or procedure

Note, though, that you are covered by Workers’ Compensation and eligible for benefits any time that you are injured in an activity while furthering the interests of your employer (e.g., in activities ranging from driving a vehicle while on company business to participating in a company social event such as a picnic).
