Types Of Workers’ Comp Benefits
Rhode Island workers’ compensation offers a variety of benefits, but getting all the benefits you need can be difficult, especially if you and your family are coping with the aftermath of a serious injury. Insurance companies and employers regularly try to deny or delay benefits to workers and their families. At the Law Offices of Lawrence J. Signore, we can stand up for your rights and help you get the benefits you need and deserve.
These payments replace lost wages due to total or partial disability, which can be temporary or permanent. Weekly compensation is set at 75% of a worker’s spendable base wage.
Medical Treatment Benefits
Workers’ comp pays 100% of the costs for all reasonable and necessary medical treatment. That means you should not have to cover copays or any out-of-pocket medical costs for your work injury.
Scarring, Disfigurement or Loss of Use Benefits
Workers receive compensation for permanent injuries, such as scarring, paralysis or amputation, even if the injury does not render the worker permanently disabled.
Injured workers who cannot return to their old jobs due to their injuries may qualify for rehabilitation and retraining.
Death / Survivor Benefits
These benefits are available to families grieving the loss of a loved one due to a work injury or illness. If your loved one died in a work accident, we can investigate the case, explain your options, and help you get the benefits you need to honor your loved one and move forward.
