Understanding Workers' Compensation

Workers' compensation provides free medical care for injuries suffered on the job and for occupational illnesses. It also provides weekly income benefits equal to two-thirds of your average weekly wages for as long as you are unable to work.

Unfortunately, workers' compensation rules are complex and what you don't know about the system can hurt you. For example, if you refuse a light-duty assignment, the insurance company may stop your benefits, even if you feel you are not able to work. If you miss a doctor appointment or rehab session, your benefits will stop.

Lawyer Wayne Bush is here to advise you at every stage of the process, including settlement of your case if you suffer a permanent impairment. He can also evaluate your case to see if you have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the party that caused your injury. Under the civil justice system, you may be able to recover compensation for pain and suffering and other damages not covered by workers' compensation.
