What Kind Of Workers’ Compensation Benefits Will I Receive?
Attorney Eric T. Kirk will tell you.
Medical, wage loss and impairment beneifts.
If you’re injured at work, in almost every work there’s compensation case, the injured worker’s entitled to three types of benefits. One is wage loss benefits. If a doctor takes you out of work for a period of time, you’re entitled to recover wage loss benefits for that period of time. You’re also entitled to recover medical benefits or have your medical expenses met by your employer or their insurance company, for so long as you have symptoms or you have a treatment that’s related to that worker’s compensation injury. You’re also entitled, under the workers’ compensation law, to have an evaluation done to see if you sustained a permanent impairment to one or more parts of your body as a result of your workplace injury, and you’re entitled to monetary compensation for that permanent loss of function of one or more parts of your body.
