Easton workers’ comp FAQ
If your question isn’t listed below, call us to speak with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney right away.
Q: Am I required to hire a lawyer to apply for workers’ comp?
If workers’ compensation is paying your benefits, you do not need a lawyer. However, if you apply for workers’ comp and your claim is denied, a workers’ comp attorney can fight for your benefits on your behalf. It is advantageous to have a workers’ comp lawyer if:
- The insurance company denies your claim
- You have a pre-existing condition
- There is a dispute over your disability rating
- Your injury is impacting your ability to work
- Your employer denies that your injury was work-related
- There’s a dispute over the settlement amount
- You’re struggling to get the treatment you need
If you simply have questions about the workers’ compensation filing process, or what your employer is/is not allowed to do, we can help with that too. Call us for a consultation and we will answer your questions at no charge.
Q: Can I still get workers’ comp if I was not injured at work?
Under Pennsylvania law, an employee seeking workers’ compensation must have been injured while acting in furtherance of the employer’s business. In other words, to be eligible for worker’s comp, you don’t need to have been injured while at your job site. However, your injury must have occurred while doing your work duties. To discuss whether your injury qualifies, call us today.
Q: When will my workers’ compensation benefits start?
After you notify your employer of your work-related injury, your employer and its insurer must act within 21 days. However, they have several options. First, your employer could agree that you sustained an on-the-job work injury. In such an instance, they will issue a Notice of Compensation Payable or Notice of Temporary Compensation Payable. Alternatively, your job could deny your claim. In that case, they will issue a Notice of Compensation Denial. Importantly, you must have medical proof of your injuries, ability to return to work, and medical restrictions. You cannot receive benefits without this important documentation.
Q: How often will I receive my workers’ compensation benefits checks?
Most of the time, insurance companies mail workers’ comp payments every other week. They issue payments as a check. Occasionally, some insurance companies pay injured workers every week.
Q: How long will my workers’ compensation benefits last?
The amount of time for which you can receive workers’ comp payments will depend on the severity of your injuries and whether your disability is temporary or permanent. In many cases, employers may attempt to stop your benefits before you are ready to return to work at full capacity. For that reason, it is important to hire an experienced workers’ comp lawyer to fight for your continued payments.
