Aggressive Workers’ Compensation Representation
Many accidents happen while at work. In Pennsylvania, thousands are hurt every year while they are at work. Every business in Pennsylvania is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance in case of an accident. Workers’ compensation is designed to recover an employee’s economic loss during their period of recovery.
The term “workers’ compensation” refers to a system of laws outlining specific benefits to which injured employees are entitled, and the procedures for obtaining such benefits. Every state has its own workers’ compensation laws, which are contained in statutes, and vary somewhat from state to state. In addition, there are special, federal workers’ compensation laws for employees of the federal government and other, specific types of industries.
Under the law in Pennsylvania, every business must have some form of workers’ compensation insurance to cover injured employees. Filing a workers’ compensation claim is similar to filing an insurance claim; it isn’t a lawsuit against an employer, but rather a request for benefits.
