Weekly payouts for workers' compensation in Pennsylvania


Each type of job in Pennsylvania has its own set of demands and job requirements. Some jobs require long periods of sitting down in front of a computer and are relatively safe. However, there are many other types of jobs that require significant physical demands and the use of heavy machinery. Others require exposure to various toxic chemicals or hazardous materials. These types of jobs have more inherent risks involved and more workers are injured while working.

These workers may be placed in very difficult situations afterward both physically and financially. This is especially true if they are unable to work or incurred significant medical bills while treating the injury or illness. Workers who find themselves in this unfortunate situation may want to seek workers' compensation benefits. These benefits pay for the medical expenses and can also pay for part of the injured workers' incomes while they are unable to work.

The amount of money they will receive depends on the amount of money they were earning when they were working. The maximum weekly benefit is $1,025 in 2018. If the worker earned between $768.76 and $1,537.50 per week then they will receive 2/3 of their weekly pay. If they earn between $569.44 and $768.75 per week then their weekly benefit will be $512.50. Finally, if the worker earns less than $569.44 per week then their weekly benefit will be 90 percent of what they earn.

Workers in Pennsylvania generally go to work thinking that they will come home unharmed. However, many accidents occur and many workers are injured as a result. These workers may miss time from work as a result, but that does not mean that their bills will stop. These injured workers may want to seek workers' compensation benefits, which can be very valuable. It is important that they receive the full amount they are owed and that they return to work only when they are truly better.
