Q: I broke a few teeth due to a work injury. Does workers' compensation pay for dental work? Do I get any money in addition to the bills.
In a Pennsylvania workers' compensation claim, if you require dental work that is reasonable and necessary and caused by a work injury, your employer's workers' compensation insurance must pay for the treatment necessary to correct your injury.
Additionally, if you are left scarred or disfigured due to this accident, then you may be able to seek wage loss benefits. The amount of money you receive may be up to discretion of the judge and would come down to a finding of how severe the disfigurement might be. If you have questions about your rights, it's best to reach out to an attorney as soon as you can.
