Workers Compensation in Chester County PA
Speak to West Chester PA Workers Compensation Lawyer Steve Jarmon if you have been injured at work. Understanding workers’ compensation benefits is important for workers who have been injured on the job and need benefits to pay for resulting medical bills and lost wages. When you have been injured at work, you have a right to have your medical bills paid, and to receive payment for your lost wages. There are specific time limitations for notifying you whether or not your claim has been accepted or denied. It is also important for you to immediately notify your employer of an injury at work, because a delay in reporting can limit your ability to receive your workers’ compensation benefits.

- Medical expenses and treatment:
The law requires that your employer provide reasonable and necessary medical costs including prescription drugs, hospital stays, visits to physicians and clinics, and medical equipment. Employers may provide a list of at least 6 health care providers that you can choose from and must see for the first 90 days after an injury. You have the right to see a doctor of your choice if the employer does not have a designated provider.
- Lost wages:
If you are unable to work or are unable to return to a job at the same income level as you earned prior to the injury, you are entitled to “temporary total disability” or “partial disability” for your lost wages.
- Specific loss benefits:
If your workplace injury has resulted in permanent injuries that resulted in the loss of hands, fingers, limbs, sight, hearing or other bodily parts or functions, you may be able to receive specific loss benefits.
- Death benefits:
In the case of a fatal workplace injury, the family members of the victim may be able to receive death benefits through the workers’ compensation process.
