If you were hurt while you were on the job performing a work-related task, regardless of whether or not anyone was at fault or to blame for the accident, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation. Although workers’ compensation may cover a variety of things, such as medical costs and pain and suffering, one of the most important things that it covers for someone is lost wages. Someone who is eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits is someone who cannot carry out their work-related duties anymore. Because of this, it is essential to receive that compensation in order to provide for themselves and for their family when they are unable to earn the money themselves due to their accident.

Did you know?
Your average weekly benefits through workers’ compensation is determined by taking the highest 39 weeks of the 52 weeks before your on-the-job accident occurred.
Your worker’s compensation rate is usually 80 percent of your after-tax average weekly benefits. Wage loss compensation is not subject to federal or state income taxes. This is because your workers’ compensation rate is already calculated based the after-tax value of your normal weekly rate.
