Unfortunately, thousands of people are killed in workplace accidents every year, and millions more suffer serious injuries. Some industries, such as construction and manufacturing, are more dangerous than others. But, the truth is that it’s possible to sustain injuries in practically any type of workplace. Another truth is that employers and their workers' compensation insurance carriers often do not treat an injured worker fairly – making it all the more important to speak to one of our skilled workers' compensation lawyers to protect your rights if you are hurt on the job.
Remember all employers who have 1 or more employees in Pennsylvania are subject to having workers' compensation insurance for those workers. Workers compensation insurance is mandatory for employers throughout Pennsylvania, regardless of if their employees are full and/or part-time. Workers compensation insurance covers medical bills and lost wages for someone injured on the job in PA. If you have been injured at work–or lost a loved one in a workplace accident–speak to a workers’ compensation lawyer at KaplunMarx at once. You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, and our workers' compensation lawyers will work tirelessly to help you obtain maximum compensation for your workers’ comp claim.
What Are Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Benefits?
Most people who have sustained an injury at work are covered by the workers’ compensation system in Pennsylvania. Workers’ compensation is designed to compensate injured workers for their lost wages and medical bills, however, it does not compensate victims for their emotional pain and suffering. If a worker is killed in a workplace accident, this system will pay death benefits to the victim’s loved ones.
It’s also important to note that the workers’ compensation is a no-fault system. This means that the injured worker does not need to prove who was at fault in order to obtain benefits for their workplace injuries.
What Types of Injuries Are Covered By Workers’ Compensation Benefits?
The workers’ compensation system in Pennsylvania covers a wide range of injuries and illnesses. Most injuries are covered as long as they meet these conditions:
- The injury was sustained while the worker was performing his job duties, regardless of whether it occurred on- or off-site.
- The worker did not intentionally cause his injuries.
- The worker was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs when he sustained the injuries.
- The worker was covered by the Workers’ Compensation Act at the time the injury was sustained.
- The injury was reported to the employee within the timeframe established by law.
If these conditions are met, the injury is most likely covered by the workers’ compensation system. This is true regardless of who was at fault for the accident or how long the employee was employed with the employer at the time of the accident. Even if it’s your first day on the job, you could be entitled to these benefits if you are injured.
What Are the Most Common Workplace Accidents?
A number of different accidents are common in workplaces including:
- Slip and falls
- Falls from heights
- Exposure to hazardous chemicals or other substances
- Car accidents
- Accidents involving heavy machinery or tools
- Warehouse accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Broken Bones
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Spinal Injuries

How Can A Lawyer Help With the Workers’ Compensation Process?
An attorney can review the details of your case to determine if filing for workers’ compensation benefits is the best legal option available to you. In some cases, it may be appropriate to file a personal injury claim against a third party that is responsible for your injuries.
Your attorney can also ensure you submit the appropriate paperwork and receive the proper medical treatment in a timely manner. The insurance company may put up a fight and try to lower the value of your claim or reject it altogether, but the attorneys at KaplunMarx will not let them walk all over you. We will work tirelessly to ensure your claim is approved as soon as possible so you can start receiving the benefits you deserve.
If your initial claim is denied, we will immediately begin the process of filing an appeal. You are our main priority, so we will continue to fight until we have reached the best possible outcome in your case.
What to Do If Your Workers’ Comp Benefits Are Terminated
Some injured workers are notified that their workers’ compensation benefits will be terminated even though they are in no position to return to work yet. If you are in this situation, it is critical to seek legal representation from a Pennsylvania workers' compensation lawyer who will protect your rights.
An insurance company cannot terminate your rights unless they have good reason to do so. We will prove that they don’t have good reason to terminate your benefits to ensure you continue to receive them until you have made a full recovery.
