How Much Does Workers Compensation Claim Pay You?

The benefits you can claim in a Worker's Compensation case vary from one state to another. There are general guidelines you can use, however, to come up with an estimate. Most of these depend on whether or not your case is open or if it has already been finalized and is considered to be closed.

Open Claims

Time lost from work is one of the biggest concerns, especially for those who have experienced temporary, total disability. The average guideline is 66 2/3% of the wage you were receiving at the time of your injury. The next type of benefit has to do with returning to work at a lowering paying job for a short period of time after your injury. There are states who don’t recognize this, so you will need to discuss it with your attorney. Another form of compensation is payment for your medical expenses. Your medical bills and your compensation for time lost at work are two separate things and are determined separately.

Closed Claims

In the event that your Workers’ compensation claim has already been finalized, there are only a few ways to maintain your benefits. They include the following:

  • You receive a pension for being declared permanently and totally disabled
  • You were determined to be partially disabled but still qualify for weekly reimbursement
  • You were rewarded with a structured settlement agreement with ongoing payments

In most cases, you will need to have a Worker’s Compensation attorney guide you through the legal process.
