Tips on Vacationing While On Workers’ Compensation

Tips on Vacationing While On Workers’ Compensation

Summertime is right around the corner and many families are making plans for a much-needed vacation. But if you’ve been hurt on the job, you might be wondering if your work injury claim will be affected by your plans to travel.

The good news is that even injured employees receiving workers’ compensation benefits are still able to go on vacation. Employers cannot stop injured workers from enjoying their lives.

However, going on vacation isn’t without risk. Not only is it possible to reinjure yourself—resulting in more recovery time and missed time away from work—but going against your doctor’s orders can result in losing your benefits.

For more on this, please read “Can I Go on Vacation While Collecting Workers’ Compensation?” shared by our friends at the law offices of Gross & Kenny, LLP in Philadelphia. Although the firm focuses its practice on Workers’ Compensation law in Pennsylvania, the advice they offer can be helpful to injured workers in any state.
