Understanding Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation is designed to protect employees who suffer injuries while performing their job duties. It covers various aspects of your injury, including:

  • Medical expenses incurred due to the injury
  • Lost wages, typically a percentage of your pre-injury earnings
  • Support for retraining if you’re unable to return to your previous job
  • Disability benefits for severe injuries that result in long-term or permanent disability

Types of Disability Benefits

If your injury prevents you from working more than a week, you may be eligible for temporary total disability benefits. These benefits amount to two-thirds of your weekly earnings before the injury.

Temporary partial disability benefits are available if you can still work but earn less than usual due to your injury.

In cases of permanent disability, if your injury is severe enough to render you unable to work, you may receive permanent total disability benefits for life. Permanent partial disability benefits are awarded based on the extent and impact of your injury.

Challenges with Claim Denials

Employers may contest workers’ compensation claims to avoid increased insurance premiums. If your claim is contested, you have the right to appeal the decision. Navigating the appeals process can be complex, which is why having a knowledgeable workers’ compensation attorney on your side is crucial.

Seek Legal Representation

If you’re facing challenges with your workers’ compensation claim, don’t hesitate to seek legal representation. An experienced attorney can provide valuable guidance and representation throughout the claims process, ensuring your rights are protected and you receive fair compensation for your injuries.
