Q. 4. Must the injury occur on the employer's premises to be compensable under PA Workers' Comp?

An injury does not need to occur on the employer’s premises to be compensable under PA Workers’ Comp. As long as your injury occurs while you are in the course of employment, the injury is compensable. For example, if you are injured in an automobile accident while running an errand for your employer, the injury is normally compensable. On the other hand, injuries that occur while you are on your way to or from work may not be compensable. If you are injured on your employer’s premises on your way in or out of work, your injury may be compensable. In addition, commuting may be covered if you are a traveling employee.

If you have questions and would like to discuss a work injury or workers’ compensation claim with us, please feel free to call Willig, Williams & Davidson and its work injury lawyers at 1-866-413-COMP (2667) or 1-215-656-3600.
