While medical care for all injuries sustained on the job is covered under workers’ compensation, the amount of benefits for which any given injured worker qualifies varies depending on the case. Along with medical care, workers are to be reimbursed for mileage to all medical appointments.
Additionally, benefits are set up to compensate injured workers for lost income/wages. Workers’ compensation benefits paid at a rate of two-thirds of a worker’s weekly wage, these benefits are not taxable. In the event that the worker sustains a permanent disability, it may be possible to reach cash settlement, depending on circumstances.
