Work injuries are injuries an employee experiences while they are on the job. Work injuries typically fall under workers' compensation cases. Employees must be provided workers' compensation benefits by their employers. There are five types of benefits provided by workers' compensation for work injuries:
Workers' compensation provides compensation for work injuries. However, it is not based upon negligence. It is based on the relationship between the injured worker and the employee. This means that if you are employed by a company and you suffer a work injury, you are compensated under workers' compensation coverage no matter whose fault the injury was. Emotional stress or mental anguish are not covered by workers' compensation. Generally, you will be paid two-thirds of your total wages at the time of the work injuries. This amount is determined by all the forms of income you receive from work, including wages, food, lodging, tips, commissions, overtime and bonuses. You also have the right to receive medical treatment.
These workers' compensation benefits can be complicated. Workers' compensation does pay for work injuries, but not for stress and anguish. Especially in the case of work injuries that result in permanent disability, permanent disability is difficult to calculate. If an injury is caused by a third party source a workers' compensation lawyer can help establish negligence for you.
