Under many state workers' compensation laws, injured employees are not entitled to the entire amount of their regular salary while off work due to a work-related accident. Income benefits while temporarily disabled and off work are generally computed at two thirds (2/3) of your gross average weekly wage. However, the state laws generally set a maximum weekly wage that is used in computing your income benefits. The maximum wage set by state law is usually dependent on the date of your injury. It is important that you have a full understanding of the workers' compensation law in the state where you work, so that you receive the full benefits that you are entitled to if you are injured during employment. For more information on workers' compensation, contact a qualified attorney.
