Government Workers' Compensation Archives

Understanding federal workers' compensation

Many people may think that workers' compensation benefits are the same, no matter who an employer may be. For government workers, though, that is not the case. The Division of Federal Employees' Compensation is responsible for overseeing and managing the benefits of government workers. This includes reviewing, approving and denying injury and illness claims, helping injured workers get back to work and paying survivors death benefits.

Expansion of workers' compensation presumption law considered in some states

In some lines of work, there are certain injury and health risks one takes on as part of the job. For example, first responders face a variety of situations which can put strain upon their lungs and heart.

Workers all around the state of Pennsylvania go to work each day and encounter dangerous situations. These workers understand that without the right protection and care, they could very easily be injured. However, few employees put their lives at risk the way firefighters do.

At any moment, the unthinkable can happen and firefighters can be severely injured in a workplace accident.

Blaze in station house injures 2 Pennsylvania firefighters

Statistically speaking, being a firefighter isn't considered one of the most hazardous jobs in the country. According to the latest numbers released by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics and reported by Forbes, deaths per 100,000 full-time firefighters in 2012 were so few that firefighting didn't even make it into the top 10 most dangerous. It's riskier to be in construction or roofing than to be on the front line of a blaze.

Workers' compensation protection is something available to all workers in Pennsylvania. It's a valuable benefit that anyone who suffers an injury while on the job should be aware of. To be sure they get the full extent of coverage available, they may wish to consult with an attorney.

2 firefighters dead, 2 recovering, after being shot on the job

Emergency responders face huge risks on the job. For police officers and firefighters across Pennsylvania, the dangers are part of the job description. When these brave government workers suffer job injuries, we rightly hail them as heroes. When they are hurt or killed on duty by someone's purposeful sabotage, the pain is felt deeply well beyond the community that suffered the loss.
