If you are injured on the job in Pennsylvania, the Workers Compensation Act (“the Act”) allows for the appropriate remedies. The Act applies to all injuries that occur within Pennsylvania. For those who are employed in Pa. and travel out of state, there are other circumstances where the Act would apply:
–The employment is principally localized in Pa.; or
–Employee is working under a contract of hire made in Pa. and employment is not localized in any state; or
–Employee is working under a contract of hire made in Pa. in employment principally localized in another state whose workers compensation law is not applicable to the employer; or
–Employee is working under a contract of hire made in Pa. for employment outside the U.S. and Canada.

If you’ve suffered a work injury and have questions about your claim, contact me at or call (570) 347-1011 for a free consultation.
