Types of Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Workers’ Compensation exists to help injured workers get back on their feet again. It’s a safeguard for hard-working people just like you who deserve a helping hand in the event of a serious accident on the job. But what kind of benefits can you secure through workers’ compensation? Here are 3 types of workers’ comp benefits we can work to secure for your injuries:
The cost of medical treatment continues to go up in the U.S., which means your injuries could end up costing thousands of dollars. An experienced workers’ comp attorney can help get the following treatment paid for and more:
- Doctor’s visits
- Surgical procedures
- Lab tests
- X-rays and diagnostic tests
- Hospital care
- Prescription drugs
- Medical equipment (such as crutches)
- Medical supplies ordered by approved physicians
Getting back on your feet takes more than a few doctor visits. You could be in for months of physical rehabilitation, and those sessions can cost quite a bit. As your attorney, we’ll work to get every rehab session paid for.
As an injured worker, you may be entitled to a variety of cash benefits, known as indemnity benefits, including:
- Temporary total disability
- Permanent partial disability
- Permanent and total disability
- Wage loss
An attorney can help you identify which of these cash benefits you qualify for and work to secure them for you.
