Seeking workers' compensation for post traumatic stress disorder

Most people associate post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) with veterans who have spent time in war zones and witnessed unimaginable violence and carnage. However, people in all walks of life suffer from it for a multitude of reasons.

State legislators pass a new workers' compensation bill

A Republican-backed bill, which would require follow-up evaluations for severely injured workers, was passed by the Pennsylvania House of Representatives on Friday, June 22.

Can you get benefits to supplement workers' compensation?

If you're unable to work for an extended period because of an illness or injury, one of your top priorities is securing a source of income while you're not receiving a paycheck. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) from the government and long-term disability (LTD) insurance, which many people have through an employer-sponsored plan, can help you and your family.

Most workers who suffer a work-related injury or illness on the job are covered under the Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act. As such, they are entitled to receive both lost wages and coverage for medical expenses for any injuries suffered on the job. If a worker dies, then his or her dependents may be entitled to receive death benefits as well.To claim WC benefits, it's important to report any work-related illness or injury to your employer right away. This will give you the highest chance of having your claim paid on.

If your hand gets caught in a meat grinder while you're working at a butcher shop or you become ill from breathing in moldy air circulating in your office building, then you may be able to file a workers' compensation (WC) claim. While many employers in Pennsylvania are required to offer WC insurance, not every workplace injury is covered, neither is every worker is entitled to protection under these types of laws either.
