The Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act was designed to ensure that employees who were injured in the course of doing their jobs received adequate medical care and compensation for their lost wages. It is the responsibility of each employer to carry insurance coverage in the event of an employee injury.
If you have suffered any type of injury while you were working, you have the right to seek workers' compensation benefits. Many people do not understand their rights under workers' compensation and often seek treatment under their personal health insurance. An experienced Monroe County workers' compensation attorney can help you understand your rights and work to ensure that they are protected.
