Getting injured at work can be a major disruption to your daily life and overall well-being. Workers’ compensation is designed to help you get through this difficult period and get back to your routine. Knowing what types of workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to can help.
Medical coverage will include all of the medical treatments you might need that are related to your workplace injury. They should cover all of the deductibles and copays as well as any equipment you might need like crutches or walkers. They should also include long-term care that might be necessary.
Missed wages due to an injury or illness at work should also be covered by workers’ compensation. If you have been unable to work due to an incident, workers’ compensation can help you financially through this period. The amount of time you are unable to work, as well as how serious your injuries are, will determine the benefits you are entitled to.
If you are unable to return to your previous job because of an injury, vocational rehabilitation may be included in your workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits are meant to help you get any kind of training or counseling you might need to help you find another job.
