Unfortunately sometimes Pennsylvania employers are not current on their workers compensation insurance. Like other insurance policies missing payments can result in the policy being canceled. In other situations employers may not carry the insurance at all due to negligence. Both of these situations are illegal but there is hope if you have suffered a workplace injury and your employer does not have workers’ compensation coverage. In November 2006 the Pennsylvania Uninsured Employer Guaranty Fund (UEGF). This is a fund that allows injured Pennsylvania employees and workers benefits and financial compensation for injuries sustained on the job.
Filing a claim under these circumstances is slightly different than a traditional workers’ compensation claim and should only be handled by an experienced workers compensation attorney. Please contact our Pittsburgh Workers Compensation Attorneys to discuss how they can help you file your claim.
