What Does Workers’ Compensation Do?
Workers’ compensation is a no-fault insurance system for injured workers. Under this system, you cannot be easily denied its benefits if you are partially or fully at fault for your workplace accident.
The benefits that you can get through workers’ comp include:
- Medical care: The full amount of necessary medical care needed to treat your work-related injury should be provided through your workers’ compensation insurance. Everything from emergency care and surgeries to prescriptions and deductibles should be covered. Problems can arise if the insurance company says that you have received elective treatments, as in those that are not necessary and, therefore, not covered by the insurance plan.
- Disability pay: If you cannot work for several days because of your injury, then you can be provided temporary disability pay equal to two-thirds of your average pre-injury wages. If you can never return to work or full-time employment, then you might be eligible for permanent disability pay that lasts until your retirement. We can help you understand your disability pay benefits and how to get them because the insurance company might not be willing to work through it with you.
- Vocational rehabilitation: It might be possible for you to return to work, but not your pre-injury work. For example, if you usually worked the stockroom but suffered a shoulder injury, then you might be able to return to an office position within the company. Workers’ compensation benefits can help pay for any new training courses you might need to start a new job position. It is even possible to receive vocational rehabilitation benefits that pay for education and certification needed to begin a career at an entirely different company.
