What benefits are available in a Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation claim?


A: There are several types of benefits available in a Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation claim. You should be aware that you can still file a personal injury claim against some parties, such as contractors and equipment manufacturers, even if you receive Workers' Compensation benefits after a construction accident in Philadelphia.

Workers' Compensation benefits in Pennsylvania include the following:

  • Payments for loss of income - if you are partially or completely disabled you could be entitled to benefits for your lost wages.
  • Death benefits - if your loved one has died as a result of a construction accident in Philadelphia, you might be able to receive certain benefits.
  • Specific loss benefits - you might be entitled to these benefits if you lose all or part of your finger, thumb, arm, hand, toe, foot, leg, hearing or sight. You could also be a candidate for special loss benefits if the accident caused permanent disfigurement on your face, head or neck. 
  • Medical care - you are entitled to reasonable medical or surgical care from a doctor or other healthcare provider. You are also entitled to hospital services and treatment, medication, supplies, orthopedic appliances and prostheses. If you seek medical treatment outside of Pennsylvania, you could be billed for any expenses that the insurance company does not cover. 

A Philadelphia construction injury lawyer can review the details of your accident and discuss your legal options. Depending on your injuries, the Workers' Compensation benefits you receive may not be sufficient to keep you afloat during your recovery time.

As you recuperate, your Philadelphia construction injury lawyer can conduct a thorough investigation to uncover all parties that should be held accountable for your injuries.
