If you’ve been injured at work and are going to file a workers’ compensation claim, you may be wondering how much money you’re entitled to.
Getting a fair recovery should be your number one goal after reporting and getting treatment for your injury.
You are entitled to money for all reasonable and necessary medical expenses.
These expenses should be paid by your employer or your employer’s insurance company.
You are also entitled to disability benefits for lost income due to your injury.
The amount recoverable will be based on what part of your body was injured and whether your injury caused temporary or permanent disability.
You may be able to recover up to 80 percent of your spendable earnings.
Other expenses like mileage to and from medical appointments, vocational training and death benefits may be recoverable as well.
