Report your workplace injury immediately to your supervisor or employer. It is your employer's responsibility to report your injury to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry.
By law in Pennsylvania, you have up to 120 days to report your workplace injury, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry. However, we strongly urge injured workers to report their injury immediately. Your employer must then report your injury to the Bureau of Workers' Compensation.
Initially, your employer will decide whether you will receive workers' compensation benefits, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry. However, insurance companies and doctors who examine injured workers can dramatically influence whether you receive workers' compensation benefits.
The time limit varies depending on the severity of your injury. If you have a temporary injury, you will likely be able to receive workers' compensation benefits for up to 90 days. If you have a permanent injury, you could receive workers' comp benefits for life. However, every case is unique. That's why it's critical you hire a lawyer to help you navigate your way through your case.
The Pennsylvania Department of Labor states on its website that "you should be aware that WC (workers' compensation) litigation is complex, and your employer or your employer's insurance carrier will be represented by an experienced attorney." That's why it's vital that you have a lawyer on your side looking out for your interests. That's why you need O'Malley & Langan.
