Settlement Question?
#4
(10-31-2014, 01:06 PM)confusedinjured1020 Wrote: I broke me ankle on the job. Had to have surgery and have screws and plates put in my ankle to repair. I am in PA. Not sure how this works with workers comp. And just need to know what I am entitled to get from workers comp. I am getting a weekly check from them and my medical bills are being taken care of. However I am not able to go back to work until the DR releases me which is not until i can walk without support. Am i entitled to a settlement as well once i am done physical therapy?

You are never "entitled" to settlement in PA, but the parties are always free to work out a settlement agreement. All you are entitled to is payment of reasonable and necessary medical bills related to the acknowledged work injury and related wage loss.
