What types of expenses are covered by workers' comp?

view our Practice areas

Maintaining a job is important for residents in Wisconsin. Most cannot pay their bills without a steady income. Thus, when one becomes injured or is diagnosed with a medical condition, this can make work problematic. If an employee is unable to complete their work or do the work they could do prior to the injury or illness, it could prove to be financially problematic.

The inability to work due to an injury is a possibility for any worker, no matter the type of industry or the type of work. This is why workers' compensation benefits are made available to those eligible for them. Essentially, in order to be covered by workers' compensation insurance, an employee typically must have been injured in connection with their work. In other words, he or she must have been working and carrying out tasks that align with their job.

What types of expenses are covered by workers' comp? If one is approved for these benefits, workers' comp could cover medical care expenses, replacement income, costs related to retraining, compensation for permanent injuries and other similar damages. It should be noted that if an injured worker collects workers' compensation benefits, he or she is unable to sue his or her employer for damages.

While it may seem simple and straightforward to just file for workers' comp following a workplace incident, it is not always that easy. In fact, some employees have additional hurdles and require more documentation to prove eligibility. This is where legal representation can be of assistance, helping one with the process and any additional steps needed in order to secure these benefits.
