You do not pay for treatment after a work injury. If your injury happened while you were working, then the cost of getting you healthy and back to work will fall on your employers’ workers’ compensation coverage.
Temporary Disability Benefits
After a work injury, there is a strong likelihood that you will need time off work to heal. You have the right to receive temporary wage replacement benefits to help make ends meet while you recover.
Permanent Partial (Or Total) Disability
If your injury is permanent, and you can no longer perform elements of your job, you are entitled to continued benefits. Whether you are only partially disabled or totally disabled, you can receive payments to make up for your lost income.
Loss of an income is an aftershock to the loss of a loved one, but it can have devastating effects considering the costs of living. Workers’ compensation death benefits help families make up that financial shortfall while they work to rebuild their lives.
