When is an employee eligible to workers' compensation benefits?


There is really only one way people in Pennsylvania are able to pay for their monthly expenses and that is with money. In order to obtain the money needed to pay for these things most people need to have a job and earn an income. There are many different types of jobs that people have and many different ways to earn that income, but people need their jobs. However, in order to be able to work their jobs and earn their paychecks, they must be healthy.

That is why workplace injuries can be so devastating. These injuries can be very severe and result in significant medical treatment, which as people know can be very expensive even if the person has health insurance. Not being able to work also means that the person will not be earning an income and meeting their monthly obligations can become very difficult. However, people who are injured at work may also be entitled to workers' compensation benefits to help pay for these financial hardships.

These benefits are available to anyone who was injured while in the course of their employment and that occurred in a situation related to that employment with a few exceptions. Those exceptions are: if the employee intentionally inflicted the injury on him or herself; if the employee was intoxicated at the time and the injury resulted because of the intoxication; if the worker was injured by another person intending to injure the worker due to personal animosity and not related to their employment; and if the injury occurred in a work vehicle, but not during a time when they were working.

People in Pennsylvania work many different types of jobs. Some are more dangerous than others, but people can be injured in any workplace setting. Most workers injured while working may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits, which can be very valuable as the injured workers recover from their injuries. Experienced attorneys understand how important workers' compensation benefits can be and may be able to help one receive what they deserve.
