How Much is My Case Worth?
The Value of Your PA Workers' Compensation Case
Pennsylvania's workers' compensation system is complex and can be difficult to navigate alone. Among other questions, you may be asking what your workers' compensation case is worth. That's an important question to ask, because you'll want to be able to provide for yourself and your family. We know your life doesn't stop because you're injured, and we're here to help you understand the value of your workers' compensation case.
Workers' compensation will offer a payment that is based off the amount of money that you earned while working. Because that amount can vary greatly between individual cases, we suggest that you call our legal professionals at 1-866-943-3427 or fill out our online legal consultation – located in the top right corner of this page – for a free consultation. We'll be able to help you understand the important factors that determine the value of your workers' compensation case.
You can lose your workers' compensation payments if you:
- Refuse to submit to reasonable medical services
- Refuse to comply with an order to have a medical exam
- Are convicted of a crime and are put in jail
- Fail to complete and return an employee verification form to the workers' compensation insurance company within 30 days
Your lost wage payments can also be stopped:
- By a judge appointed to review the facts of your workers' compensation claim
- If you have fully recovered from your injury and have signed a "Final Receipt" – signing this receipt means you agreed to stop your benefits
- If you are assigned to a modified, or "light duty," position; you may still be able to collect partial disability payments if the job pays less than what you made before your injury
- If you agree to receive a lump sum of money, also known as a "Compromise and Release"
- When you return to work and are making the same, or more than, you made before your injury
- The 500-week period of partial disability is over
- The time you had to collect specific loss payments ends; this time period is set based on the nature of the injury
- If you die from causes not related to your work injury
