We answer some of the most asked workers’ compensation questions in 2018 and explain the weekly wage loss benefit.

Many people live paycheck-to-paycheck and missing work is simply not an option. Getting hurt on-the-job can turn their lives upside down. We have seen disabled people lose their homes and be unable to put food on the table.

Workers’ compensation is a safety net for people hurt at work. It is insurance that almost all employers must purchase for their employees. It covers lost wages when a person is unable to find gainful employment.

A frequent question involves the amount of weekly checks. Workers’ comp pays 80% of a person’s after-tax average weekly wage subject to a state-wide maximum. This works out to be approximately 60% of gross pay. It should continue for the full length of disability.

Problems happen when the insurance company says a person can find alternate work and is only partially disabled. The weekly check can be slashed based upon a biased labor market survey. Insurance companies also hire doctors to say an employee can work. It is important to contact a lawyer should either of these situations occur.
