If you are injured at work, you should be entitled to workers' compensation under the law of the state where you are employed. Benefits vary by state but generally include wage loss, medical benefits, and rehabilitation. Wage loss benefits are usually paid for the time that you are disabled and unable to work. Many states limit the amount of wage loss benefits by capping the amount of weekly wage reimbursement and the number of weeks you are entitled to receive income benefits. The employer is responsible for the cost of medical care rendered as a result of the work-related injury. Medical benefits are payable for as long as treatment is reasonable and necessary. In extreme cases, some states also offer compensation for the cost of vocational rehabilitation. For more information on workers' compensation benefits, contact a qualified attorney.
