Are You Receiving 3 Workers' Compensation Benefits You're Entitled to By Law?
If you have sustained a work-related injury that results in your being unable to work, you could be entitled to three main benefits (there can be others others as well). These include wage benefits, medical benefits, and disability (either permanent or partial, depending upon an authorized medical doctor's finding).
Your wage benefits are based upon a percentage of what you earned during the months before your accident occurred.
Your medical benefits are paid for by your employer and their insurance – and there's no deductible for you to pay. You should not receive direct bills for this. Your doctor will
give you a Permanent Partial Disability rating that will determine the amount of disability you are entitled to. Medical benefits can include any necessary rehabilitation, re-training, and mileage to doctors' office visits, among others.
During the time you are injured and unable to work (healing), you may also qualify for temporary total disability.
