Workers Compensation Entitlements Generally

For specific advice related to your situation, it's crucial to consult with an experienced workers' compensation lawyer. Here are some common types of compensation you may be eligible for:

 

Medical Expenses: Workers' compensation typically covers the cost of medical treatment related to your work injury. This includes doctor visits, hospital stays, surgeries, medications, and rehabilitation services.

Income Support: If your injury prevents you from working, you may be entitled to income support payments. An injured worker may be entitled to 104 weeks of income support payments from the date of the injury, dependent on severity of the injuries and the worker’s ability to work. Weekly payments could also be receivable until retirement in the event that a worker is deemed to be a seriously injured worker.

Rehabilitation Services: Workers' compensation may cover rehabilitation services, such as physical therapy or vocational rehabilitation, to help you recover and return to work.

 

Lump Sum Compensation: If your injury results in a permanent impairment, you may be eligible for lump sum compensation for economic loss and non-economic loss. The amount of compensation is often based on the severity of the impairment (whole person impairment).

 

Travel Expenses: Workers' compensation may cover reasonable and necessary travel expenses related to medical appointments or vocational rehabilitation.

 

Retraining Costs: If you are unable to return to your previous job due to your injury, workers' compensation may cover the cost of retraining for a new occupation.

 

It's important to note that workers' compensation laws vary by jurisdiction, and the specific benefits you may be entitled to can depend on your State's regulations. Consulting with a workers' compensation lawyer can help you understand your rights, navigate the claims process, and ensure you receive the compensation to which you may be entitled.
