Workers’ Compensation For Public Service Employees
Federal law mandates that employers provide workers’ compensation benefits to employees injured on the job. However, the regulations and benefits are often slightly different for public employees. As a public employee in Pennsylvania, you might be protected by the state’s compensation program or another program specific to your position. It is important to know that no matter your employment status, you can receive benefits just like any other employee.
At Golden Law Firm, we will be by your side from the beginning to the end of the benefits process. Our attorney has extensive experience helping employees like you obtain the workers’ compensation they deserve. Your employer and agency have plans in place to compensate you after a work-related injury. Take advantage of the plans to obtain compensation for the physical and financial stress a work injury can put on you and your family.
No Matter The Injury, You Deserve Compensation
Regardless of your position, you deserve compensation for any injuries from your job or workplace conditions. Some of the most common injuries public employees are subject to include:
- Back injuries, commonly in the lower back
- Neck and spinal cord injuries
- Shoulder and knee injuries
- Joint injuries, including the wrist
The process to file a workers’ compensation claim is the same for public employees as it is for private employees. The main differences involve understanding the regulations of your agency. Golden Law Firm can help you understand the details and guidelines of your agency to help you obtain the full benefits available to you.
