Determining the extent of your workers' compensation benefits

Workers in various high-risk industries report for their shifts each day aware that they may suffer injury while on the job. Because employers in both high-risk and low-risk industries alike fear being sued for injuries suffered by workers while on the job, many employees are given access to insurance that entitles them to workers' compensation benefits in the event of any significant work-related injury.

Workers' compensation benefits help injured employees to pay for their medical care and to keep them financially afloat while they are recovering from work-related injuries and occupational illness. The benefits amount that each worker receives is calculated according to a number of factors. Both the nature of the injury and the amount of recovery time required in order to heal the injury are factors within this broader calculus.

It is important to note that some individuals who qualify for workers' compensation benefits also may be entitled to Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits and/or may be able to file a successful personal injury claim against their employers. The unique circumstances of an individual's situation dictate what benefits and general compensation he or she will ultimately be eligible for.

Employers and insurance providers are not always eager to pay injured and ill workers the compensation that they deserve. If you have been injured or developed illness while on the job, please contact an experienced workers' compensation attorney. An experienced advocate can help you navigate the workers' compensation system, help you obtain maximum benefits and secure other appropriate compensation guided by the unique circumstances of your situation.
