How The System Works
Initially, you might not have to deal directly with the state Bureau of Workers' Compensation. After you report your work-related injury to your employer, it is your employer's responsibility to notify the Bureau of Workers' Compensation about your injury.
However, if your employer or your employer's insurance company question your workplace injury and claim you are not eligible for workers' compensation, or if your claim is denied, you will then likely need to deal directly with the state Bureau of Workers' Compensation.
Specifically, you will likely need to appear before a Workers' Compensation Judge in Allentown or Easton, the two locations that handle workers' compensation claims in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley.
