    Question Mileage Reimbursement for Doctor Visits

    My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: PA

    My son amputated his thumb at work this past summer. Since then he has had 3 surgeries and numerous follow up visits. The hospital and transplant surgeon are 250 miles away, round trip. My question is: Is Workman's comp required to pay for his milage to the doctor visits and hospital?

    Not only am I paying the gas money and travel expenses, he does not drive, but I am also needing to take off work to go on these trips. It is an all day affair, 5 hour drive round trip, plus waiting at the office.
    Thanks for you help

    Helllo,I have had done it myself but i have a friend who kept track of his mileage each week and he said he was getting paid.Now im sure he said he said it was a small percentage but its better than nothing.Im sure in the reaserched ive done i think they must pay what i remem20% but it sounds like u drive alot so i would look into it.If you dont have a lawyer get one they dont charge unless u get something.If you live in the lancaster area let me know i can recomend one LOL.But i would really look into the mileage that could really help you out.Good luch

    Thank You. Years ago I had an injury which requried trips to a specialist miles from my home and I remember getting reimbursed for milage, lost wages and meals. But I wasn't sure if things had changed since it has been like 15 years.
