Disability legal definition: In a legal context, disability refers to a lack of competent physical and mental faculties. An individual with a disability is incapable of exercising the legal rights possessed by a typical person. Minors, people convicted of crimes, and people who are mentally incapacitated all fall under this description.

Disability and Workers’ Compensation Cases

In Pennsylvania, employees injured on the job are entitled to replacement wages and medical care through the workers’ compensation. If a worker must take time off work to recover from an injury for which their employer is liable, they may collect temporary or permanent disability benefits.

It should be noted that in some instances, an employee hurt at work is eligible to receive both workers’ comp and state disability benefits.

If you or someone you care about was injured at work, and you have questions about eligibility requirements for work comp or state disability benefits, your best bet is to call a law firm that intimately understands these liability issues. Contact the skilled attorneys at Pribanic & Pribanic to see what legal compensation you are entitled to for your disability.
