Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) December 07, 2011
The Pennsylvania workers' compensation lawyers of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C. are prepared to help individuals who have been injured on the job take action to receive the compensation they deserve. The Pennsylvania legislature recently passed a new law which could potentially extend workers’ compensation coverage to a significant number of Pennsylvania workers who were not previously eligible for this program. The bill, HB 440, which was signed into law by Governor Corbett on June 30, expands the availability of workers’ compensation benefits to small businesses. Compensation coverage now includes sole proprietors, partners in partnerships, and members of limited liability companies.
This new protection for small business owners is an important step towards protecting all workers in Pennsylvania from financial strain caused by an injury on the job. However, it should be noted that this coverage is not made mandatory by the new law, but rather that the availability of coverage has simply been extended. Sole proprietors, partnerships, and limited liability companies are under no obligation to pursue workers’ compensation coverage for themselves.
When a worker is injured on the job, they may incur significant costs due to expensive medical bills and lost income. Workers’ compensation programs were designed to help workers deal with this issue by providing compensation for medical treatment and lost wages. The Pennsylvania workers’ compensation attorneys of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C. offer their assistance to all Pennsylvania workers who have been injured on the job.
