An employer’s Workers Compensation insurance will cover treatment for injuries sustained at work at no cost to an employee. Treatment includes medical, surgical, physical therapy, chiropractic, psychologist and hospitalization.
There Are Two Types Of Disability Payments
You will be able to obtain temporary disability checks based on your income only if you are incapable of working while you’re being treated for your injuries. Generally, an employee will receive two-thirds of their previous salary while rehabilitating. Upon returning to work, all temporary disability checks will be discontinued.
If an injury has made you permanently disabled, affecting your ability to work, then an employee may be eligible to receive permanent disability payments. A permanent disability payment is typically a lump sum payment based on several factors: type of injury, employees age, and earning-power lost.
It is illegal for your employer to discharge you or in any event discriminate against you because you filed a claim, intend to file a claim or testify or intend to testify for another injured worker. If your employer has threatened to do so, then he or she may be ordered by the court to rehire you.
