What Benefits Am I Entitled To?

Lancaster, PA Workers' Comp BenefitsAfter suffering an injury on the job, you need to know what benefits you may be entitled to and what you need to do to obtain those benefits. Your employer is required by law to carry workers’ compensation insurance and most workers injured on the job should be eligible for benefits. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can help you understand your rights and what benefits you are entitled to.

In general, workers’ compensation benefits are designed to cover lost wages and payments for all reasonable and necessary medical treatment related to the injury. The actual benefits you may be entitled to, such as lost wages, loss of limb, loss of specific use, scarring and disfigurement, will vary depending on your unique circumstances. Because of that, it is crucial to have an experienced attorney evaluate your particular situation, so that you are sure to get all of the benefits you are entitled to.

Eligibility for Workers’ Compensation Benefits

At Vanasse Law LLC, we can answer your questions regarding your potential claim and help you understand whether you may be able to receive benefits from your employer’s insurance company. Generally, in order to prove eligibility, an injured worker must be able to prove that:

  • He/she has the status as an employee
  • That he/she suffered a provable injury
  • That the injury was related to and in the course and scope of employment
  • That the employee is disabled as a result

The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act governs who is eligible and what kind of illnesses and injuries are eligible for Workers’ compensation benefits. Our firm will review your unique circumstances, provide detailed information about your eligibility, and represent you every step of the way.

File for Benefits in a Timely Fashion

You must give notice of an injury to your employer within 21 days of the accident in order to qualify for benefits. If you do not give this notice, you will not get benefits until the day you do report the injury.

If you do not report the injury within 120 days, your claim will be barred. Most importantly, if you have suffered a work-related injury, your claim must be filed within three years of the date of the injury, or your claim will be permanently barred by the Statute of Limitations.
