If you have been injured at work or have developed a condition or disease over time because of your work duties, you are entitled to receive workers' compensation benefits. You can receive medical treatment paid for by your employer. You can receive weekly payments while you are disabled and under recovering from your injury. You also are entitled to payments for any permanent injury. If you become totally disabled as a result of a job related injury, you can receive weekly payments while totally disabled.
You are entitled to these benefits if you work for a private employer or a government agency. Part time and temporary employees are entitled to benefits. In some instances, self-employed persons, independent contractors and domestic workers can also receive workers' compensation benefits.
There is no legal fee in a workers' compensation matter unless your attorney recover benefits for you. The maximum fee is 20% and the fee is set by the Workers' Compensation Judge. A portion of the legal fee is paid by your employer or its insurance carrier and not deducted from your benefits.
