Jonesboro Workers' Compensation Attorney
Obtain Workers' Compe Benefits After an Injury
If you have suffered an injury while performing a workplace activity or job-related duty, you may be entitled to benefits under workers' compensation. At Wells & Wells, we can help you obtain the compensation you need. Contact our personal injury attorneys in Jonesboro at your earliest convenience for help filing for workers' compensation.
- Under this program, you could obtain workers' compensation benefits for:
- Medical expenses
- Total temporary disability
- Permanent partial disability
- Wage loss
If you have lost wages as the result of your injuries, you are likely entitled to compensation. Wage loss is paid in addition to the impairment when you, as the employee, can no longer perform your job due to impairment.
Disability Covered Under Workers' Compensation
If you have suffered total temporary disability from the injury, benefits can be paid at two-thirds of your average weekly wage up to the commission's maximum. For permanent partial disability, benefits will be paid according to the American Medical Association's Guide to Permanent Impairment, Fourth Edition.
Workers' compensation laws have been established to ensure that employees who suffer injuries on the job are able to receive monetary assistance for the damages suffered without having to litigate their claims. It is an important safety net for employees and employers. Under this program, it does not matter who is liable for the accident.
