Workers’ compensation is a program requiring employers to purchase insurance coverage to provide workplace compensation benefits to employees who become ill or injured on the job. Through this program, workers are provided such benefits as lost wages and medical care. In exchange, employers are protected from personal injury lawsuits by injured employees. While the federal government administers a workers’ compensation program for federal and certain other types of employees, each state has its own laws and programs for workers’ compensation, such as the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act.
In a Workers’ Compensation matter, neither the injured worker nor the employer is determined to be at fault. The work injury benefits a worker receives is not decreased by the worker’s carelessness, nor increased by an employer’s negligence. However, an injured employer may lose the right to Workers’ Compensation benefits if the work related injury results from the worker’s intoxication from drugs or alcohol. Similarly, if the injured employee is hurt by his own actions or inactions intended to cause harm to himself or someone else, the employee may forfeit his right to recover under the Workers’ Compensation laws.
Once the injured employee gives the employer notice of his work injuries, the employer or its insurance carrier must agree that the job injury or illness is work-related before injured worker benefits are paid. If the employer or insurance carrier denies the work injury claim, the injured worker must file a Claim Petition to be heard before a Workers’ Compensation law judge who decides which party will prevail.
