Recovering Lost Wages in a Minneapolis Workers’ Comp Claim
After you have suffered critical injuries in a work accident, there are specific benefits that you are entitled to. Part of these benefits include your disability benefits. These are meant to replace a portion of the income that you will lose by being unable to work while you recuperate from your on-the-job injury.
Depending on whether you suffered a temporary partial disability, a temporary total disability, a permanent partial disability, or a permanent total disability, you can expect to collect approximately 66 percent of your average weekly wages. For the most part, you can expect to be able to collect benefits until you have recovered from your injuries and are able to return to work. But the type of injury that you sustained can have a dramatic impact on how long you are allowed to collect your disability benefits.
Furthermore, the remaining thirty-three percent of your lost wages will not be covered by your employer’s workers’ comp insurance provider. In some situations, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim against a third party who is responsible for causing your injuries. You can explore your legal options further with your attorney.
