What Workers’ Compensation Benefits Am I Entitled To?
Injured employees are entitled to be paid total wage loss (which is paid at two-thirds of the wage at the time of the injury) or partial wage loss (which is paid at two-thirds of the wage differential between your wage at the time of the injury and your current wage). There are limitations on how long a person is entitled to either total or partial wage loss depending upon your date of injury.
There are also benefits for permanent partial disability, although the type and manner in which those benefits are paid can vary.
If you sustain a work-related injury, you are entitled to medical benefits regardless of whether you have health insurance through your employer or your spouse’s employer. There are also vocational rehabilitation benefits, including potential retraining. There are many additional benefits that a person may be entitled to, depending upon the circumstances and the applicable law. Contact Minnesota workers’ comp lawyer Thomas Atkinson from Atkinson Gerber Law Office to ensure you get the benefits you are entitled to receive.
