What Is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation is an employee insurance program designed to provide benefits to employees that are injured at work, even though their employer was not at fault. Generally, your employer’s insurance company will be responsible to pay for any lost income, medical expenses and in some instances, a lump sum settlement. You may also be eligible for other benefits such as job retraining, money for permanent scarring and also for permanent loss of use of a body part. The system allows employees to receive benefits no matter who was at fault for the injury.

Am I Entitled To Basic Benefits?

Yes. Basic benefits usually include lost income, payment for medical bills, disfigurement, job retraining and, in some cases, a lump sum settlement. Read More.

Will I Get a Lump Sum Settlement?

In some instances, insurance companies will offer you a lump sum settlement instead of paying weekly disability benefits. The amount you are entitled to depends on the details of your particular case. Read More.

Can I Get Weekly Benefits For Lost Wages?

Yes, if you are injured at work and unable to return to work, you can collect weekly benefits for lost wages. These benefits include temporary total disability, partial disability, and permanent total disability. Read More.
