What types of workers’ compensation benefits are available?
The workers’ compensation benefits you can receive will depend upon factors such as your ability to work, your physical limitations and your medical treatment. Depending on facts specific to your workers’ compensation claim, attorney can assist you in obtaining the following types of benefits:
- Temporary total compensation: This is payment for lost wages because you are unable to work. If you miss more than seven days of work because of your work-related injury, you may be eligible for this type of compensation.
- Permanent partial compensation: This award is based upon your permanent disability. Workers’ compensation does not specifically pay for pain and suffering, however this award does pay for limitations of your functioning due to your workplace injury.
- Permanent total disability compensation: This is payment for lost wages for the rest of your life should you be unable to perform any kind of sustained employment.
- Wage loss compensation: This is a payment in the event you are forced to return to work at a lower-paying job or are unable to find work consistent with your physical limitations.
- Living maintenance compensation: You may be entitled to this form of compensation if you are in a rehabilitation program.
- Payment of medical bills: Most medical treatment must be pre-authorized and will then be covered.
- Settlement: A settlement is a one-time “lump sum” payment. This is negotiated with your employer and/or the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.
