Los Angeles Wage Loss Benefits Attorney
In addition to paying for medical care after a workplace injury or an illness caused by work, your workers’ compensation benefits may include wage loss benefits, including one or more of the following:
- Temporary disability benefits (if your injury leaves you unable to do your usual job while you are recovering)
- Permanent disability payments (if you do not recover completely)
- Supplemental job displacement benefits (if you were injured in 2004 or later and you lose your job after your injury)
Each of these types of benefits helps you to cope financially in light of wage loss caused by your workplace injury.
Temporary disability benefits for an injury occurring in 2013 in California range from $160 per week to $1066 per week, depending on variables, including what your usual income was before the injury.
Permanent disability benefits are calculated according to which parts of your body are not functioning as a result of the injury. For example, amputation of an index finger at the middle joint occurring in a 2013 accident may bring a permanent disability payment of $7,877 for a worker who had been earning $435 per week or more. This is just one example of a permanent disability benefit.
Supplemental job displacement benefits help pay for retraining or skill enhancement if you are unable to return to your previous job.
Even if you do not believe that you need help a workers’ compensation attorney, it is a good idea to review your case with a lawyer. If you are disabled and need information about wage loss benefits through workers’ compensation, contact us at The Law Offices of Scott Warmuth to schedule an appointment and learn how we can help you.
