What Benefits Do I Get In A Workers’ Compensation Case?
The circumstances surrounding your injury are important. You should report the injury immediately and document the accident to the best of your ability. Your employer will conduct an investigation and it is in your best interest to do the same.

What Types Of Workers’ Comp Benefits Are Available?
There are many types of benefits that you are eligible to receive for an accepted workers’ compensation claim. For example, you may receive payments for the wages you lost while you were unable to work. Generally, wage loss benefits are two-thirds of your earnings. You should receive full payment for your medical expenses. Medical expenses include:
- Emergency room care
- X-rays and other tests
- Home assistance
- Rehabilitation and therapy
The benefits involved in each workers’ compensation case vary based on the nature and severity of the injuries, and on the job you were doing. The outcome of your case is not assured one way or the other. You will want to consult an experienced workplace injury attorney to make sure you aren’t denied benefits you have a right to collect.
