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 412-394-1000 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.
If you return to work and you make:
- The same amount of money or more money than what you made before you were hurt, your payment for lost wages will be suspended.
- Less money than you made before you were hurt, you will receive lost wage payments in the form of partial disability benefits.
Partial disability payments equal approximately 2/3 of the difference between what you make now and what you made before you were hurt.
Example: You make $300 per week at your light duty job. Before you were injured, you made $450 per week. The difference between the two pay rates is $150 per week. Your partial disability payment would be 2/3 of $150, or approximately $100.
Your payment can not go over the maximum weekly payment rate that was set for the year you were injured. If you were injured in 2014, your weekly maximum in Pennsylvania is $932.
