Workers’ Compensation Information

First enacted in 1915, the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act protects employees who are injured or fall ill while working. Workers’ compensation helps to cover medical expenses and ongoing care costs, lost wages, and even funeral expenses if an employee is hurt, becomes sick, or dies as a result of a workplace injury or illness.

The Workers’ Compensation Act under Title 34 Pennsylvania Code defines the rules and regulations under which workers’ compensation is due. Filing a workers’ compensation claim is not a lawsuit, but a request to receive medical care for workplaces injuries. Nonetheless, it can be complicated to process a workers’ compensation claim. If you or someone you know has been injured or become sick because of work, Qualified Counsel can help find an attorney that will make sure your claim gets the attention it deserves.

In Pennsylvania, it’s illegal for employers to discriminate or take adverse action against employees for filing a workers’ compensation claim or receiving related benefits. It is important that you reach out to a work injury lawyer if you believe that you have been wrongfully terminated following a work-related injury or illness.
