Attorney for Pennsylvania Workers’ Comp Death Benefits
Deaths that occur in the course of work are devastating occurrences. It’s an unfortunate reality that, in order for a family to receive benefits from Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation, there are deadlines that must be met.
How Long Does a Family Have to File a Workers’ Compensation Death Claim in Pennsylvania?
If an injured worker dies from the work injury, a claim petition must be filed within three years after the date of death. The death must occur within 300 weeks after the injury.
In occupational disease claims, the death from an occupational disease shall be the basis for the payment of compensation only where the compensable disability occurs within 300 weeks of the last date of employment in an occupation or industry to which the employee was exposed to hazards of such disease.
