Workers’ Compensation Benefits You Are Entitled To
One helpful thing about retaining a workers’ compensation lawyer, is that he/she will be able to assist you in properly filing your claim and can also walk you through what each benefit entails.
You may be eligible to receive the following benefits:
Time loss- This term means that if you had to miss out on work due to your injury, you could be entitled to wage compensation.
Medical coverage-Once your claim is accepted, your employer’s insurance company will reimburse medical providers for the cost of your treatment.
Temporary disability-This term involves the benefits you may be entitled to as you take time off of work to recover. Medical professionals can deem you eligible for “temporary partial disability” benefits in less serious cases or for “temporary total disability” benefits in more serious cases.
Permanent disability-If medical professionals find your whole body impaired and decide that you are unable to return to work, they may award you permanent partial disability or permanent total disability benefits.
Death benefits- The spouses and children of individuals who die on the job are entitled to financial benefits.
