When an individual suffers from a workplace injury, they may be eligible for monetary and medical benefits that are paid by the employer’s insurance company. This system of compensation is called workers' compensation and was designed to provide financial aid to employees who are injured on the job without having to prove fault against co-workers or the employer. Businesses pay into the workers compensation system through their insurance providers so that in the event of a work-related accident, the medical and financial costs paid to the injured workers are paid for. The Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act allows for lost wage benefits and medical benefits for the work injury. Call Erie, PA workers' compensation attorney Tibor R.
