Compensation and Disability
Compensation includes medical treatment and two-thirds of your weekly wages up to a certain limit.
Depending on the status of your case, your doctor may have diagnosed a condition that leaves you with a temporary disability, a temporary total disability, a permanent and stationary disability, or a 100 percent permanent disability.
Your Eligibility for Certain Benefits
In each of these cases, you are eligible for certain benefits and you have specific rights. Our law office can make sure that you understand all of your rights and that any timelines associated with sustaining your benefits will be adhered to.
Whether you have had your claim denied and are appealing, your case is in the process of resolution and you need an experienced negotiator, or you simply do not understand the notice that you just received, our law office is prepared to promptly respond to your queries.
There are some situations in which you can apply for state disability and thus protect your financial stability. Ask your lawyer about disability benefits and if it makes sense to apply for it while your workers’ comp case is open.
If a loved one has died in a work-related accident, the surviving spouse and the children are entitled to receive death benefits. We can help you understand your rights related to a family member’s death in a work accident.
