There are several different ways you can be helped through workers’ compensation:
Though details vary state-to-state, workers’ compensation will cover many aspects of medical care, including doctor visits, surgeries, medication, and special equipment such as wheelchairs. Acupuncture, counseling, and other forms of therapy may also be covered.
You may qualify for rehabilitation benefits through workers’ compensation. This can help you cope with your injury or illness, and will help you regain the ability to return to work. If you are unable to return to work due to your illness or injury, rehabilitation can help you gain a new set of skills so you can perform well in another job setting.
There are four different categories of disability benefits:
- Temporary total disability means you are totally unable to work, but only for a certain amount of time.
- Temporary partial disability means that you can’t do all of your job, but you are able to perform some duties and you may be able to return to work completely in a certain period of time.
- Permanent total disability means you will never again be able to return to work.
- Permanent partial disability means that you are permanently disabled, but still able to perform some of your tasks.
If you belong in any of these categories, you qualify for disability benefits. Our team of lawyers at Groth Law Firm, S.C., will be able to determine which category is best for you, and get you the best compensation possible.
Many states provide wrongful death benefits to relatives of deceased workers. The family may be compensated for funeral and burial expenses, and for the loss of financial support.
