What Workers' Compensation Benefits Are You Eligible For?

When you are the victim of an on-the-job accident, you may not know your rights. While employers may make it sound like you'll only get payment for your medical bills, this could be far from the truth.

Located in Roswell, Figueredo Law Offices, LLC, is dedicated to upholding the rights of workers across Georgia, and will fight for every last penny in workers' compensation benefits you are entitled to receive. So what benefits are you eligible for? We lay out the big three below:

Medical Treatment

The most obvious benefit of workers' compensation is that it provides payment to cover your full medical recovery. But what many workers don't know is that this extends beyond just your initial doctor's visits. You are often entitled to compensation for any long-term treatment, prescriptions, therapy or rehabilitation.

If you are injured at work, be sure to complete your treatment so you can get back to work and begin making money again for you and your family. Our attorneys take care of all the details, so you can worry less about the financial strain of your work injury and more about your recovery.

Income Benefits

If you are out of work for an extended period of time due to your injuries, workers' compensation could provide income benefits for the wages you lost. When you or your family relies on every single paycheck, these income benefits can be invaluable. Be sure to keep documentation of how many days of work you miss, so you can claim the full income benefits you are entitled to receive.

Disability Benefits

If your injury leaves you with a long-term or permanent disability, workers' compensation can provide lasting relief to help mitigate the costs associated with that. A disability not only comes with lifelong financial and emotional strain, but can also lower your earning potential when you return to work. These costs are all accounted for in your workers' compensation package.
