When does an employer have to pay workers’ compensation in Pennsylvania?

Even when an employer has excellent safety procedures, accidents can happen.  If an employee is involved in a job-related accident resulting in bodily injury or suffers an occupational disease in the course of employment, the employer is subject to the risk of liability.

The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act (Act), and caselaw interpreting it, establishes which claims are considered defensible and also what is considered fair compensation.

Greenbaum & Pinto offers workers’ compensation defense in Pennsylvania with a dedicated  team of aggressive workers’ compensation attorneys. Although an injured worker deserves the compensation that he or she is entitled to receive when they are injured on the job, we believe that  insurers and employers should only be required to pay whatthey legally owe. Because we know the intricacies of  Pennsylvania workers’ compensation, we  are able to resolve claims quickly and cost-effectively.
