Workers’ Compensation for Teachers
Being a teacher is one of the most challenging and fulfilling careers a person can choose. While many people go into the field hoping to educate their students and provide them with a safe, learning place, barriers sometimes get in the way. Though it may not seem like the most dangerous job, teaching does come with physical and mental risks.
When a teacher is injured on the job, who is responsible for covering their injury and recovery time? Whether it’s public, private, or parochial, the school you work for may determine what type of compensation and benefits you’re entitled to. If you are a teacher in Philadelphia who was injured at work and cannot perform your job duties, protect yourself.

Injuries and Accidents Teachers Can Experience
At Martin Law, our attorneys are familiar with the accidents and injuries teachers can experience while teaching or performing other school-related duties, like coaching or monitoring the arrival and dismissal of students. We have represented teachers employed by the state, privately, and the Archdiocese, helping them fight for the compensation they deserve for their injury.
The most common injuries teachers experience at work are caused by:
- Slip and falls
- Physical attacks or violence
- Repetitive stressors
- Course-related incidents, like an accident in a lab or Phys-Ed class
- Mental stressors
- Exposure to illnesses, toxic chemicals, mold, lead paint, and other substances
If you experienced any of these injuries or accidents while teaching in Philadelphia, you’re entitled to worker’s compensation! Depending on your employer, you can receive compensation for your medical care, lost wages, and other out-of-pocket expenses.
Don’t assume that you’re covered—or not covered—in the event of an injury at work. Our experienced lawyers will educate you about your rights to workers’ compensation and make sure your benefits are calculated correctly. We have offices across the Philly Metro area, Reading, and the Lehigh Valley. Your initial consultation is free, and we take no fees unless we secure your benefits or a settlement.
