The rate of compensation you receive depends on how much money you were making at the time of your injury or at the time you became aware of your occupational disease. Under Pennsylvania law your rate of compensation is 2/3 of the amount you earned prior to getting hurt. There are some limited exceptions for individuals with extremely high incomes or individuals with extremely low incomes.
If you are out of work for less than seven days you are not entitled to compensation. There is also a seven day waiting period, meaning if you are out of work for ten days you will be compensated for three days. Finally, if you are out of work for more than fourteen days, you will get compensated starting from the first day you were out of work.
So how do you start getting paid? Generally, if your employer’s worker’s compensation insurance carrier agrees to pay you benefits, you will receive a Notice of Compensation Payable.
Many injured workers treat with a worker’s compensation doctor that your employer will send you to. However, you can generally also go to a doctor of your choice which your employer must pay for. It is often easier to go to the worker’s compensation doctor to avoid any disputes. For example, if you treat with your own doctor, the employer’s insurance carrier could argue that the care given was not reasonable thus causing a dispute regarding your medical benefits.
