Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation: Frequently Asked Questions
What workers’ compensation benefits can I expect?
If your workers’ comp claim is approved, you can receive payment for medical care, lost wage benefits, permanent injury pay, retraining costs and more.
According to Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Law, injured workers earning workers’ compensation benefits may also qualify for a lump-sum settlement. However, this stipulation may not be right for you.
Our legal team will decide the best course of action for your case – all you have to do is start a free case review to get things in motion.
How long will it take to get my benefits?
The resolution for a workers’ compensation case can take as long as 16 months. However, the timeline before getting your benefits depends on different factors.
In Pennsylvania, there is a 21-day period where employers can decide whether to accept or reject an employee’s claim. If an insurer denies a claim, the insurance company has 90 days to investigate your claim.
Having an experienced attorney at your side can help expedite this process, and get your benefits sooner than you might on your own.
What can a workers’ compensation attorney do for me?
A workers’ comp attorney will give you proper guidance in your workers’ compensation case. You can rest assured that your rights remain protected and they will fight for the maximum benefit you are entitled to.

Can I get workers’ compensation if I’m in a union?
Union workers are eligible for workers’ compensation and may have certain workplace protections over non-union workers.
If you are part of a union, a PA workers’ compensation lawyer helps review your union contract. It will usually specify how you can report your injuries, pay for medical treatment, and file for wage loss benefits.

Under the PA Workers’ Compensation Law, you are entitled to compensation benefits if you get injured at work. To claim your compensation, you must inform your employer of the injury within 120 days after it occurred and provide medical evidence from your doctor.

What we will do for you:
You may be a nurse, surgeon, or doctor working in UPMC Pinnacle Harrisburg, Hershey Medical Center, or select specialty hospital- Harrisburg. The most common injuries for health care workers include:
- Emotional stress stemming from experiencing violence or abuse in the workplace from patients or superiors
- Falling, slipping and tripping
- Strains and sprains of various body parts from lifting patients and heavy equipment
You may be one of the technological geniuses at Tyco and have recently been exposed to harmful chemicals that have made you unable to work due to the dangerous side effects they had on your health.
Or you could be a worker in the Capitol building that has a high stress position, working many hours a day, dealing with giant number of difficult people, suffering from stress related issues that could ultimately cause negative repercussions like a stroke, high blood pressure, etc.
You could be one of the unlucky few who get injured at work and cannot work again for a temporary amount of time, or may never be able to work again in some cases. A case like this leaves you with partial or no source of income, leaving you no choice but to get an outside source of money to help you make ends meet.
