Chester County Workers Compensation Lawyer
Workers compensation (colloquially known as workers’ comp in Pennsylvania and the rest of the United States ) is a form of insurance that provides compensation medical care for employees who are injured in the course of employment, in exchange for mandatory relinquishment of the employee’s right to sue his or her employer for the tort of negligence.

The tradeoff between assured, limited coverage and lack of recourse outside the worker compensation system is known as “the compensation bargain.” While plans differ between jurisdictions, provision can be made for weekly payments in place of wages (functioning in this case as a form of disability insurance), compensation for economic loss (past and future), reimbursement or payment of medical and like expenses (functioning in this case as a form of health insurance), and benefits payable to the dependents of workers killed during employment (functioning in this case as a form of life insurance). General damages for pain and suffering, and punitive damages for employer negligence, are generally not available in worker compensation plans.
Employees’ compensation laws are usually a feature of highly developed industrial societies, implemented after long and hard-fought struggles by trade unions. Supporters of such programs believe they improve working conditions and provide an economic safety net for employees. Conversely, these programs are often criticized for removing or restricting workers’ common-law rights (such as suit in tort for negligence) in order to reduce governments’ or insurance companies’ financial liability.

Needless to say, the insurance companies that manage workers compensation in Pennsylvania rarely play by the rules; they all so often seem to be motivated by money and making sure that injured workers are hurried back to work or are let go. You deserve better.
Though workers compensation was designed so that a claimant could make a claim on his own, the age of big insurance has changed that; with insurance companies regularly contesting the most reasonable of claims. You need an experienced Workers Compensation lawyer because claims get denied, because insurance companies try to suspend or terminate your benefits, medical bills don’t get paid, or when you are ready for a lump sum settlement and need an experienced attorney to get you the most you deserve.
