Workers' Compensation Benefits

Woodstock Workers’ Compensation Benefits Lawyers

Fair Compensation for Workplace Injuries

If you were injured in an accident at work, you may be wondering how you will pay medical bills or how you will make ends meet. Fortunately, most employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, which means you may receive benefits to cover those expenses and more. Contact a Woodstock workers’ compensation benefits attorney at The Warlick Firm, for more information.

Reach out to our workers compensation law firm online or at (678) 797-7705 to learn more. The initial consultation is free, and we don’t charge any fees unless we win your case.

Understanding Your Workers' Compensation Coverage

Payments in a workers’ compensation case should cover all costs you incurred because of your workplace injury. Some people are eligible for additional funds to compensate them for a permanent or temporary disability.

Workers’ compensation benefits typically cover the following expenses:

  • Medical expenses
  • Any physical or vocational rehabilitation costs
  • Weekly disability benefits—either temporary total disability (up to $675 per week), temporary partial disability (up to $450 per week), or permanent partial disability (up to $675 per week)
  • Weekly wage benefits, up to two-thirds of your normal pay per week, with a maximum of $675 per week

The duration of weekly payments is based on the sort of injury you received. An injury that leaves you completely disabled for a limited time will allow you to collect disability benefits for that duration, up to 400 weeks. A partial disability, such as the loss of use of a limb, has a different time frame depending on the specific appendage injured.

Catastrophic injuries, which prevent you from ever being able to work again, have no limit to the amount of time benefits can be paid.

Exclusions in Workers' Compensation Benefits

Unlike a personal injury claim, workers' compensation does not pay for emotional damages such as pain and suffering. However, there are certain situations where you may still be able to sue separately for these types of damages by filing a personal injury claim. For more information about this, please contact our workers' compensation lawyers.
