What are some types of workers’ compensation benefits?

There is financial support available to individuals who suffer injuries on the job. You may already know that if you are hurt in a work accident, you could have grounds to pursue benefits through a workers’ compensation claim. While you know that your employer has workers’ comp insurance, you may not know what it covers or how to get the full amount you deserve. It could prove helpful to learn more about these benefits and your right to recovery.

The intent of workers’ compensation insurance is to provide financial support for those who are missing time away from work after a job-related injury or illness. It can cover medical bills, lost wages and more. You may even be able to claim benefits that will help you get back to work when you are ready.

What does it cover?

The specific benefits available to you depend on the nature of your injuries and what types of support you need to recover. A workers’ compensation claim can potentially help you seek recovery for the following:

  • Disability – Workers’ comp could cover a portion of your lost wages if you are unable to work because you suffered a disabling injury. The specific amount depends on whether your injury is temporary or permanent.
  • Vocational rehabilitation – You could secure benefits that will help you return to work, such as training, job search assistance, resume help and more.
  • Medical bills – Medical treatment is expensive. If you need medical care after a work accident, workers’ comp could cover your health care needs and any ongoing treatment you require.

Workers’ compensation insurance also provides death benefits for those who lose loved ones due to work-related injuries or because of job-related exposure.

The full amount you deserve

Workers’ compensation insurance companies sometimes deny claims, or they may not give you the full amount you deserve. Instead of leaving money on the table, you may find it helpful to work with an attorney who can help you maximize your claim.

If you are unsure of where to start or what benefits could be available to you, it could prove helpful to first seek an assessment of your case. This can help you understand what you need to do to make sure you secure all the benefits to which you have a rightful claim.
