What Workers' Compensation Benefits Am I Entitled To?

You may be entitled to receive all reasonable and necessary medical treatment, benefits for lost wages, benefits for specific injuries resulting in permanent disabilities such as loss of use and/or disfigurement (scars). You may also qualify to participate in certain physical and vocational rehabilitation programs. If the injury causes the death of an injured worker, burial expenses are covered and the dependents of the deceased worker are entitled to certain benefits.

Repair or replacement of personal clothing, footwear or protective equipment is covered when an item is lost or damaged because of a work­related injury. The same is true if those items are lost or damaged because of emergency treatment offered on the scene.
