Workers’ Compensation is a system of benefit payments designed for people who have been injured by an accident in the course of their employment. It also provides compensation for workers who develop an occupational disease as a result of their employment.
Workers’ Compensation provides temporary total disability checks for injured workers who are under a doctor’s care and receiving medical treatments that are reasonable or necessary to provide a cure, give relief, or lessen the period of disability. Compensation for permanent injury is based on an impairment rating, impaired wage earning capacity or permanent total disability.
If you or a loved one has been injured on the job, you may be entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits. Contact us for a free initial consultation.
