Workers Compensation Verdicts and Settlements

Pittsburgh Workers' Compensation Lawyers and Lump Sum Settlements If you have been injured on the job and can no longer work, it may be possible for you to receive a workers' compensation lump sum settlement, ending your workers' compensation claim. The lump sum is essentially a sum that encompasses all wage loss benefits while ending all claims for future medical expenses related to your on-the-job injury. Many people choose to receive a lump sum payout because they no longer have to be monitored by workers' compensation and they can use that significant sum to return to school for retraining or to purchase a home or pay off a large debt. 
At the law office of Ogg Murphy & Perkosky, we offer free initial consultations to help injured workers understand their rights regarding a workers' compensation claim. Our Pennsylvania law firm has represented the rights of injured workers in workers' claim compensation matters for nearly three decades. Our lawyers will help you understand your rights and your options concerning a lump sum settlement. Based on our decades of experience and knowledge of workers' compensation law, we can help you understand what kind of lump sum settlement you may be able to receive. Examining the Entire Financial Picture We will make a full review of your case, including the potential ramifications that a lump sum may have on other kinds of benefits you may be receiving. The timing of the receipt of benefits such as Medicare, Social Security Disability, and other benefits can have an effect on your lump sum settlement. It is important to speak to an experienced workers' compensation attorney so that you can have an understanding of the best way to approach your case and move forward with your life. If you have questions or just want to review a plan of action with an experienced workers' compensation lawyer, we do not charge a fee for a free, confidential consultation. We represent all workers' compensation clients on a contingency basis, which means that our fee is tied to our successful resolution of your workers' compensation claim.

Workers Compensation Information from https://www.workplacefairness.org/workers-compensation-general 

 What is workers' compensation?

The workers' compensation system evolved quickly after the turn of the 20th century in this country. Along with the industrial revolution came bigger, faster, and more complex machinery, and many more work place hazards. Congress passed the Workers' Compensation Act for federal employees in 1908. Each state has now passed workers' compensation laws providing both replacement income and medical expenses caused by injuries that occur on the job, as well as occupational diseases or diseases specifically caused by something unique to the workplace. While the workers' compensation program is national, the states are responsible for implementing it, which means that every aspect, from who is eligible to the process of filing claims, varies according to the laws of the state in which you live.

These laws were initially put in place to balance the rights of workers and employers and provide a basic good for society as a whole, as a way to settle differences quickly and privately. Both the employer and employee give up some legal rights under the workers' compensation laws of the various states. The employee gives up the right to go to court and sue his employer for on-the-job injuries which, in some states, could be for unlimited amounts of damages (although many states have passed laws capping the amount of damages). Instead, the worker is entitled to receive a certain recovery, based upon fixed maximums set by the various states.

In return, employers give up the right to challenge the employee's negligence, if any, which may have contributed to the injury or illness. The workers' compensation systems are considered "no-fault" systems. Employers finance the system primarily through insurance premiums, although in some states, companies are allowed to self-insure, which means that they pay all claims themselves.

The Workers’ Compensation Act provides a system to pay benefits to workers injured on the job or workers with an occupational disease regardless of who was to blame and regardless of the previous physical condition of the employee. The nature and seriousness of the injury do play a large role in the amount of compensation in which the injured worker may ultimately receive.


Our workers' compensation clients have been awarded settlements in many types of workers' compensation claims along with any associated third party workers compensation litigation. The workers compensation law applies to all injuries or occupational diseases occurring in Pittsburgh and the state of Pennsylvania no matter where the worker was hired and may also cover injuries or occupational diseases that have occurred outside of the state of Pennsylvania.

To get up to date information on current laws, you need to speak with a Pittsburgh workers compensation lawyer from our firm to assist you. What Constitutes a Pennsylvania (PA) Work Injury? A "work injury" is any injury, medical condition or disease that is caused by a person's job, according to Section 301(c)(1) of the Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Act, 77 P.S. §411(1). The Pennsylvania Act will not get specific when it comes to the variety of injuries covered. The only specific is that the injury must have resulted directly from an accident in the workplace.  What may Pittsburgh workers’ do not know is that a work injury is not limited to a one time incident or accident in the workplace or on the job site. Pre-existing conditions that are made worse due to the working conditions may also apply if it can be proven that the workplace directly caused the pre-existing illness to become much more serious. When should I report a work injury to my boss?  There are reporting time requirements set by the state and you should speak to one of our Pittsburgh workers’ compensation lawyers to get the most up to date information about the current law. In any case it is important to report the workplace injury as soon as possible no matter how small and insignificant the injury may seem to you or others. Small workers’ injuries can get worse over time and you do not want to be in a situation with a serious injury that you never reported. Many companies use reported injury information, no matter how small to make the workplace safer as well. Don’t try to tough it out, report it.  Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (PA) Workers Compensation Benefits May Include Weekly compensation to the disabled worker, wage loss; Reasonable, necessary and related hospital, surgical and medical expenses; and Death benefits and burial expenses for the deceased worker’s dependents. Medical Care and Benefits for Injured Workers and disability benefits  Our Pittsburgh Workers Compensation Law Firm will strive to collect all of the Pennsylvania Workers Compensation benefits, eligible medical care, rehabilitation services, and investigate any possible third party claim.
