Though everyone has heard the term worker’s compensation, it is not really important until they need it. Worker’s compensation benefits will help dedicated workers who get injured on their job, especially if they end up missing work, making it even harder to pay their bills.
So, you may be wondering what worker’s compensation will pay. It will help you with the following:
- Worker’s compensation will pay all of your medical bills from the injury and illness. This includes doctor’s visits, medications, and much more.
- If you end up missing work, worker’s compensation will help cover your income that you are losing. You won’t get your full income but you get income that is not taxed, which can help you out even more.
- If you are seriously injured and will be out for a long time (or unable to come back to work), it will help to compensate you for lost wages. You can also get some money depending on the depth of your injuries.
- If you are killed on the job, worker’s compensation will pay benefits to your family to help them during this difficult time.
Worker’s compensation can be the difference between keeping up with your bills while you are injured and losing everything. However, if you get worker’s compensation, you are not allowed to sue your employer, even if you think that you need more.
