15 Questions Answered
- Q. Still working after injury. Must I use accrued PTO for WorkersComp Dr. appointments? Will WorkersComp reimburse my PTO?
- A: If you are not able to schedule your doctor’s appointment before or after work and you have an accepted Pa Workers’ Compensation Claim, then your employer would need to pay you Partial Wage Loss Benefits for the time you miss from work due to your attending the appointments. You should be able to receive Workers’ Compensation Benefits rather than using your PTO each time you miss work to treat for your work injury. It is best to consult with Pa Board Certified Workers’ Compensation Attorney. The facts of each case are different and the results will vary from case to case. Best of luck to you.
- Q. What happens if your Employer doesn't report your work-related injury to the State Worker's Comp Board?
- A: Your employer is required to report your work injuries to their insurance company and the State. There are several reporting requirements for both the employer and the injured worker. Therefore, I recommend that you contact a Board Certified Workers’ Compensation Attorney to discuss your circumstances in greater detail. Most attorneys will provide a free consultation. If you have suffered a work injury and your employer is being less than cooperative , then it is certainly time for you to consult with an attorney.
- Q. Can the insurance company schedule an IME with a dr that is I’ve 90 minutes from my home?
- A: Yes, the insurance company can schedule this exam that far away from your home. They must, however, provide transportation to and from the IME. If this presents a hardship, you can request the insurance company schedule an IME closure to your home. But, in all likelihood, you should contact a Board Certified Pa Workers’ Compensation Attorney in your area for assistance in making such a request. There are many factors that need to be considered with the scheduling of an IME. As such, a consult with an Attorney is recommended. Best of Luck.
