Pennsylvania workers’ compensation is a program covering both injured workers and employers. Injured workers are eligible for providing injured workers are provided benefits such as lost wages and medical care while employers are protected from personal injury lawsuits by injured employees.
Workers’ Compensation Is “No Fault” Insurance meaning 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 employee may not be eligible to collect workers’ compensation benefits if the work-related injury results from the worker’s intoxication from drugs or alcohol or when hurt by his own actions or inactions intended to cause harm to himself or someone else.
All Pennsylvania employers are required to purchase workers’ compensation insurance. However, if you discover your employer does not have workers’ compensation insurance, you may be eligible for the Uninsured Employers Guaranty Fund (UEGF), which provides workers’ comp benefits to PA employees of employers with no workers’ compensation insurance.
