You Deserve the Most Benefits Possible
The Workers’ compensation is designed to cover your medical expenses, but the insurance process is also designed to make it a challenge to get the benefits you deserve. Insurance companies have many opportunities to deny your claim and question its validity. You should work with our Duluth workers’ compensation attorneys to make certain you are capable of getting all the benefits owed to you.
Three important benefits available through a workers’ compensation claim are:
- Wage benefits: You can receive up to 66.67% of your average pre-injury wages to a maximum of $725 through workers’ compensation. This benefit is available while you cannot return to work per an authorized treating physician. Or the employer cannot accommodate your work restrictions.
- Permanent disability benefits: When your injury is severe and might keep you from returning to your job or any job for the foreseeable future, you might be able to get permanent disability benefits, which compensate you for loss of use of body parts.
- Medical benefits: You should not have to pay for any of your necessary medical treatments after a work injury. Everything from hospitalization, surgery and co-pay costs should be provided by the insurance company.
You Caused Your Own Accident – Is That Okay?
Workers’ compensation is a no-fault insurance system, which means liability is not a crucial factor to a claim. If you admit to accidentally causing your own injury, then you can still get full workers’ compensation benefits. The only issue that can arise is if the insurance company has reasons to believe that you intentionally got hurt, did not get hurt at work, or are exaggerating your injury.
