Hurt on the Job? Help is on the Way.
Under the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act, a work injury is any illness or medical condition caused or aggravated by the normal performance of one’s occupational responsibilities. Allergies, bone fractures and contagious diseases may all constitute a work-related injury under Pennsylvania state law.
If necessary, seek medical assistance. After the physical injury has been addressed, make sure you notify your employer as soon as possible. Nothing can happen before your employer receives a statement explaining what happened. Even if you believe your injury is minor and will not require medical treatment, go ahead and tell your boss anyway. It never hurts to cover all your bases.
