Are You Entitled to an Increase in Your Wage Loss Benefits?

In a recent commonwealth Court Decision, Bucceri v WCAB (Freightcar America Corp.), No. 2021 C.D. 2010 (Filed, November 22, 2011), the Court found that an employer’s payment of supplemental unemployment compensation benefits should be included in the calculation of an injured worker’s average weekly wage where the payments are an accrued entitlement that have been built up over time as a result of services performed by the injured worker for the employer.

If you received supplemental unemployment compensation benefits in the 52 week period leading up to your work injury, or if you feel that you are not receiving the correct amount of Workers’

Compensation benefits, you should speak with an attorney to see whether you are entitled to an increase in your wage loss benefits. Call (215) 568-7500 today for a free consultation.
