What You Should Get Out of Workman’s Comp
- Wage Reimbursement – Wage benefits are owed to you at the fee of two-thirds your weekly rate. This is usually computed by averaging your wages for the 13 weeks prior to your injury. Cost of living and weekly reimbursements will not increase after the amount is determined. Weekly wage settlements are not payable until the certified treating doctor has placed you on a no work status.
- Medical Repayment – Medical benefits are payable by your employer and their insurance policy. The deductible should not have to be covered by you. The medical professional or hospital shouldn’t bill you directly. Medical benefits comprise of travel to and from the physician and prescription expenses.
- PPD Rating – After your doctor allows you to go back to work and you are totally recovered, the doctor should give a PPD rating that will provide an end payment to you.
