Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Fight For Your Lost Wages
After you have been injured on the job and are unable to keep working, temporarily or permanently, you should be able to count on workers’ compensation. Depending on the exact injury that you have suffered, you may also be eligible for other wage benefits or Social Security Disability benefits.
At Swartz Fogy Law Group, we represent individuals who have been injured and are currently struggling with the loss of wages. If you are unable to work as a result of a workplace injury, you should not have to worry about dealing with the loss of wages on top of the medical bills and other related expenses. Yet, the entire process of filing a workers’ compensation claim can be quite confusing and difficult to navigate without the help of a skilled workers’ compensation attorney.
What Workers’ Compensation Benefits Am I Entitled To?
Typically, workers’ compensation benefits include about two-thirds of your weekly wages. However, if you are receiving other benefits in addition to workers’ compensation benefits, you may not receive full wage loss benefits.
What Types Of Benefits May Affect Your Wage Loss Benefits?
There are many different types of benefits that may affect your wage loss benefits, such as:
- Short-term disability benefits
- Long-term disability benefits
- Severance pay
- Unemployment compensation
It is highly advisable to retain the services of an attorney who can help you navigate the complex laws surrounding workers’ compensation claims and lost wages.
