What Can I Get for Workers' Compensation Benefits?

These are generally four categories of benefits available in a workers compensation claim. (Death Benefits and Permanent Total Disability benefits and additional benefits which are not addressed on this page).

(1) Weekly Wage Benefits

If a doctor says you are completely unable to work, you will temporarily receive weekly wage replacement benefits called Temporary Total Disability (TTD) benefits. The weekly benefit is determined be taking the average of the 26 weeks of gross wages before the injury (before taxes), and then multiplying by 2/3.

(2) Medical benefits

The insurance company must pay for medical care, medicines, and supplies that are reasonable and necessary to treat your work injury for the rest of your life. You have the right to choose your own doctor.

(3) Vocational Rehabilitation

If you cannot return to your old job because of your work injury, or because of your injury you are unable to find work close in pay to your pre-injury employment, you may be entitled to Vocational Rehabilitation services, which includes working with a VR counselor and getting training, education, job placement or on-the-job training.

(4) Permanency benefits

You may be entitled to compensation for permanent injury, though not all injuries result in permanent impairment. Permanency benefits are determined by a doctor when you reach Medical End Result.
