Primary Benefits of Workers’ Compensation
There are three primary types of workers’ compensation benefits: wage-loss benefits, medical benefits and vocational rehabilitation. Wage-loss benefits are intended to compensate you for lost income due to a work-related injury – usually paid at a percentage of your total wage, tax-free – while medical benefits are simply payment of medical bills and expenses related to your work injury. If needed, Vocational Rehabilitation benefits include job retraining, job-search services, career counseling and tuition.
An injured workers’ primary concerns are usually, first, how do I replace my lost income, and, second, how do I pay my medical bills? In a perfect world, it would be nice if, when you get hurt on the job and miss work, the employer’s insurance carrier automatically replaced your lost wages and covered all of your medical bills. But, more often than not, this is not the case. Workers’ compensation insurance companies make money by denying benefits, and so they deny employees’ entitled benefits, a lot.
Get a Workers’ Comp Attorney on Your Side
When an employee is injured at work there are a number of things that a Workers’ Comp attorney will need to do to navigate through the complex maze of Minnesota workers compensation laws and regulations including: special workers’ compensation statutes, rules and court decisions; Department of Labor rules; and various government programs.
This is in addition to dealing with the insurance company and its team of people who aren’t looking after your best interest, but rather are looking at ways to avoid paying your workers’ compensation benefits.
All too often, people attempt to go up against the workers’ compensation insurance company on their own, failing to realize that the insurance company has an army of people working behind the scenes looking for ways to deny legitimate claims.
