If you are someone who has been injured in an accident in the workplace, and that injury finds you unable to return to work for the foreseeable future, you are most likely now seeking workers’ compensation benefits. That being said, there are many ways in which these benefits can help you, and there are also many different types of workers’ compensation benefits you may receive. You should also note, however, that these benefits vary from state to state. Please continue reading and speak with AllianceMeds today to learn more about the different types of no-fault insurance and how those benefits may help you. Some examples of workers’ compensation benefits are as follows:
Temporary Total Disability Benefits
If you are an employee who was injured, you may receive these benefits while you heal, however, if you are disabled and cannot return to work, you may still receive temporary total disability benefits.
Temporary Partial Disability
These are temporary payments that go to injured employees that are partially disabled and recovering from that disability. If you are injured, though you are capable of working part-time or limited duties at a reduced income level, you may receive temporary partial disability payments.
Permanent Total Disability Benefits
When an employee is permanently and totally disabled, such as if both arms, feet, hands, eyes, or other vital parts of the body are completely disabled.
Permanent Partial Disability Benefits
If you are not permanently disabled, though one part of your body is permanently impaired, you may receive permanent partial disability benefits, which come in the form of weekly compensation benefits. The extent of the benefits that you will receive depends on your average income.
