Benefits In Alcoa Work Injury Cases
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania dictates what benefits are obtained in PA work accident cases. While there are federal workers’ comp laws our firm does not handle them. The Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry is the entity responsible for workers’ comp laws and rules in PA. Common benefits in PA workers’ comp cases are:
Current and future medical care
Lost wage compensation
Disfigurement and scarring benefits
Short term and long term temporary disability
Death, funeral and survival benefits (if someone died in the Alcoa accident)
In many construction site and manufacturing plant injury cases there are third party liability benefits. These are common in construction site accidents, machine equipment accidents (where machine manufacturer is responsible for maintenance), heavy equipment accidents, ladder falls, scaffolding accidents and trench collapse cases. In cases such as these an injured worker may be able to obtain benefits like pain and suffering compensation.
