Workers' Comp: Coverage and Claims
Most Pennsylvania employees are eligible to receive workers’ compensation as most employers are required to provide compensation by the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act. This means that if you are injured on the job, you can likely apply to receive the benefits available to covered workers. If your employment does not include coverage, such as an agricultural, federal civilian or casual position, the Uninsured Employer Guaranty Fund might supply the benefits you would otherwise enjoy through the workers’ compensation system.
As coverage begins at the moment of employment, medical benefits for any work-related injury, illness or disease that is not intentionally inflicted can be collected from the date of onset. Upon experiencing a workplace injury, report the details to your employer promptly. After being notified, your employer is required to report your injury to the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.
If you have reported your workplace injury and your employer has denied your claim, contact Ross & Ross at (814) 274-8612. We will work hard for the benefits you have earned.
