Recovering Workers' Compensation Benefits Under Pennsylvania Law
Under Pennsylvania workers' compensation law, if the employer accepts responsibility for the injury, or if the employer is found to be responsible over its objection, you're entitled to recover wage loss benefits, medical benefits and possibly specific loss benefits.
Our workers' compensation lawyers have achieved success in claims involving on-the-job accidents of all kinds. We have the experience to pursue benefits for any employee who has suffered any type of workplace injury or occupational disease.
It is important to understand the difference between a workers' compensation case and a personal injury case. However, in some situations, injured workers may be able to file both types of claims, and may also be able to pursue Social Security benefits. We are able to handle all related claims and are committed to maximizing your benefits and compensation.
