Workers Compensation Benefits

Workers Compensation laws are designed to ensure that employees who are injured or disabled on the job are provided with fixed monetary compensation; thus, eliminating the need for frivolous litigation. But sometimes companies and private employers subvert these laws and fail to pay sufficient money to those injured or disabled on the job. If you are injured on the job, you are entitled to workers compensation benefits calculated by the level of impairment your injury has had on your ability to work a job. Benefits for lost wages will vary depending on whether your injury is considered a temporary total disability or a permanent disability. Compensation is based on your average weekly wage (gross earnings before the accident or disease, usually during the preceding 52 weeks, and includes overtime and other benefits provided by the employer such as meals, uniform, car and housing allowances). Your family can also receive death benefits in the case of your death. You also can receive payments for all medical treatment (prescriptions, supplies, equipment, hospital costs, doctor bills) and a portion of your weekly wages.
