Queens Workers Compensation Attorney Keetick L. Sanchez Explains the Benefits After a Work-Related Injury
May 31, 2022 at 16:28
Queens workers compensation attorney Keetick L. Sanchez releases a new article (https://accidentlawyer-queens.com/do-i-get-full-pay-if-injured-at-work/) describing the benefits of a work-related injury. The lawyer mentions that workers who are hurt at work or suffer from an illness connected to work may have uncertainty regarding their employment and income. This uncertainty is one of the goals of workers' comp benefits to address. Workers' compensation benefits are dependent on many factors.
According to the Queens workers compensation attorney, "Workers' compensation has three categories of benefits: medical, cash, and supplemental. How much they will pay for a work-related injury will depend on multiple variables, including the amount of your pre-injury salary, the level of your disability, how long you will be out of work, and the extent of your medical costs."
The lawyer explains that the first category of benefits is the medical benefit. This type of benefit will cover medical costs, including doctor visits and medical procedures. These expenses will be paid immediately and continue to be paid until the person is healed from their disability or injury. There is no maximum amount for medical benefit payments.
Attorney Keetick L. Sanchez also states that workers' compensation supplemental benefits can be available for those who are permanently handicapped and began receiving benefits before 1979.
In the article, the lawyer also explains the cash benefits of workers' compensation. These cash benefits will compensate for the victim's inability to earn wages while they are incapacitated or disabled from work. The amount of cash benefits is calculated based on the wages earned before the injury.
“If your physician says that you are 100% temporarily disabled, meaning that you are unable to work at all temporarily, your benefits will be equal to two-thirds of your average weekly wages. If the doctor determines that you aren't able to return to your former job but can perform some level of work, partial temporary benefits are available by taking two-thirds of the difference between your regular wages and the new light-duty wages," says the injury lawyer.
Lastly, attorney Sanchez emphasizes the importance of having a skilled lawyer when it comes to matters such as workers' compensation. Having an experienced attorney may be able to help the victim receive the compensation that they deserve for the injuries they suffered.
