Workers’ compensation insurance can provide benefits that include wage replacement, payment of medical bills, payment for vocational rehabilitation, related legal fees, and other benefits. Workers’ compensation covers a deceased workers’ family with a financial benefit as well. Most employers are required to obtain workers’ compensation coverage so that workers have coverage.
What Can I Expect to Be Paid?
Workers’ compensation wage replacement benefits are paid at 60% of your gross average weekly wage if your doctors say you are totally disabled. Benefits should continue for as long as you lose time from work or are unable to earn your pre-injury wage. You may receive partial or total benefits, depending on the extent of your injury and insurance carriers often get it wrong.
What Should I do If I am Injured?
- You must notify your employer of your illness or injury immediately.
- Save all receipts from the doctor or hospital and write down every detail of the event you remember, as soon as possible, such as the date of the injury, witnesses present, and any other relevant information.
