What To Do If You Can't Return To Work

Experienced Bethlehem Workers' Comp Attorney Explains

A serious work injury can prevent people from returning to work for weeks or months or sometimes even longer. That's why it's important that you or a loved one receive workers' compensation benefits in Pennsylvania.

But what else should you do? What else is important if you can't return to work due to a serious, work-related injury or illness?  What are all your legal options? These are critical questions and it's important you have accurate information when making such decisions.

You Have Options

Knowing what to do if you're hurt at work immediately after an accident is important. But that's often only the beginning of what needs to be done after a workplace injury to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve and the support you need to fully recover.

Depending on the circumstances of your workplace accident, you may be eligible for different types of benefits. These include:

  • Wage loss benefits: That might be total wage losses or partial wage losses.
  • Medicals for your injury: Medicals are a wide range of available benefits.

Beyond making sure you're fairly compensated after your workplace accident, it's equally important to make sure you have a plan for recovering from your injuries. Such a plan may include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Regular checkups with physician
  • Job retraining if your injury results in a permanent disability

The State Office of Vocational Rehabilitation may be able to help you find a different position or receive job retraining, particularly if you sustain a permanent disability. But such state agencies deal with thousands of people. That's why it's important that you have someone on your side looking out for your specific needs. That's why you need us in your corner.
