Workers compensation insurance is a form of insurance designed to protect Pennsylvania employees who are injured on the job. All Pennsylvania employers are required by law to carry workers compensation insurance and if an employer does not carry the required level of workers compensation insurance they can actually be subject to criminal penalties. Workers compensation insurance is designed to cover your wage loss and your medical costs associated with your work injury.
After you've been injured at work an adjuster would contact you by telephone to gather information about your claim. There are limits on how much information you actually have to provide to an insurance adjuster and by contacting a lawyer we can help talk you through and navigate exactly what information you have to provide in order to make your claim for workers compensation insurance benefits.
