New maximum compensation rate for Pennsylvania workers

In Pennsylvania workers compensation cases, there is a maximum compensation rate.  Every year, this maximum rate is modified.  As we all know, when you are injured at work and you lose wages, the workers compensation insurance company has to determine your “average weekly wage.”  Based upon that, most employees will get two-thirds of their average weekly wage, up to a maximum amount.
The maximum rate for 2015 has been set at $951.00 per week in wage benefits.  Therefore, even if you made $10,000.00 per week, the max that you will receive if you are off work due to a work injury would be $951.00.

As always, should you have any Pennsylvania workers compensation questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
