In both Pennsylvania and New York, employers are required to provide workers’ compensation benefits that cover injured employees’ medical bills, a portion of lost wages and other workplace injury-related expenses. Regardless of whether your employer carries workers’ comp insurance, our skilled attorneys in PA and NY are well-versed in handling all types of workers’ comp cases and can determine other options for compensation that may be available to you.
The amount of income benefits you will receive depends on various factors and there is no set time limit on how long you can receive workers’ compensation benefits. Ideally, you should be able to receive workers’ compensation benefits until you are ready to go back to work. However, many employers and insurance companies try to limit how long you can receive medical and cash workers’ compensation benefits or may even try to deny valid workers’ comp claims.
