If you were injured on the job in Pennsylvania, filing a workers' compensation claim may be the last thing on your mind. After all, you already have more than enough to worry about. You have to schedule medical appointments, complete recommended treatment, figure out how to pay the bills that keep piling up, take care of your children - and the list goes on. It's hard to think beyond the immediate necessities of life.
However, filing a workers' compensation claim is likely to be one of the best things you can do right now. Workers' compensation can potentially provide the medical benefits you need to recover. It can also provide the money you need to keep putting food on your family's table. It's worth it to file a claim.
But here's the catch: You have time limits. The clock starts ticking after your accident or illness, so you need to act as soon as possible.
