When you are in pain due to a workplace injury, the last thing on your mind is calling someone about filing a claim. You are likely in so much pain that you can hardly think clearly. Perhaps you are laid up trying to figure out how you are going to pay for everything. If you have experienced any type of work-related illness or injury then you may also be experiencing a loss in wages. Workers' compensation is designed to help protect employees against lost wages due to work-related injuries and illnesses by reimbursing them. If you’re experiencing a loss of wages but don’t know what steps to take to file a claim, contact Robert Ozeran Compensation Attorney.
Lost Wage Replacement Benefits
Two types of lost wage replacement benefits may be available to you, temporary disability and permanent disability. Temporary disability benefits are paid an employee who loses income due to an injury and they are not able to work their current job while they are recovering. If an employee can't work at all then this is considered a temporary total disability. An employee that can’t work a full schedule, yet they can still work, are eligible for temporary partial disability.
Permanent Disability Benefits
In most cases, employees recover from their illness or injury and can return to work. However, in some rare cases, they suffer severe injuries with lasting impairments. Permanent disability is awarded to an employee with reduced wages when there their condition is not expected to improve. A physician would have to make this call and gives the employee a permanent disability rating. It is classified as either a total or partial disability. Employees who will not be able to work again due to their condition are eligible for permanent total disability. If you receive these types of benefits then you can expect it for the rest of your life.
