Disability & Your Workers’ Compensation Claim

The type of injury you are facing could leave you with varying amounts of time that you are unable to work, and in most cases, employers will not necessarily cover extended leaves from your job. Some severe cases could leave you unable to work for months, sometimes even years. With your inability to generate income due to your injury, you could be left struggling to make ends meet.

    • Impairment benefits

When approved, disability benefits will begin to provide you with necessary income to assist you during your transition back into the workplace or help cover costly medical bills.
