Fortunately, the law provides ways in which injured workers can recover compensation for their injuries.

Workers may also be able to recover compensation through third-party lawsuits.

Workers' Compensation in Pennsylvania

Most states have a workers’ compensation program that enables injured workers to recover compensation for their medical expenses and lost income amongst other losses related to their injuries. In Pennsylvania, most employers are required to carry workers' compensation coverage for their employees. This includes non-profit organizations. Even businesses with only one employee are required by Pennsylvania law to carry workers’ compensation insurance. Businesses that fail to do so leave themselves open to lawsuits from injured employees as well as criminal prosecution by the Department of Labor and the commonwealth.

There are exceptions to workers' compensation insurance requirements. These include:

  • People who work under other types of workers’ compensation programs. These include federal employees, railroad workers, and longshoremen.
  • Agricultural workers who have worked for less than 30 days or are paid less than $1200 in a calendar year from a single employer
  • Domestic services. Coverage for these workers is optional.

Navigating workers' compensation laws can be overwhelming. It helps to have an experienced Philadelphia workplace accident lawyer fighting in your corner. Contact us to learn more about how we can help to maximize your financial recovery.
