Eligibility needed to claim workers' compensation in Pennsylvania

The Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act provides medical expense reimbursement if any worker suffers any work-related injury or illness. There is also compensation available for lost wages until the worker can return to work. Also, if a worker dies from a work-related injury or illness, dependents are compensated. All compensation is paid by a private insurance company with whom the employer has coverage, or by State Workers' Insurance Fund for self-insured employers.
