Workers’ Compensation Benefits: Here’s What to Expect!

In North Carolina, there are four major types of benefits available for those who are suffering from workers’ compensation. Those are:

  • Medical bills: Workers’ compensation pays for 100% of all medical treatment, seeing as it’s reasonable and necessary to recover. Many times, disputes over what qualifies as a ‘reasonable’ or ‘necessary’ treatment will ensure, and the attorneys at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer and Balaban can help you fight for what you need. 
  • Rehabilitation and retraining: If you, or someone you love, is unable to return to work due to the injuries sustained preventing you from doing your daily duties, you may be entitled to seek out rehabilitation or retraining costs.
  • Financial compensation: If you are unable to work, you can still receive disability benefits that will replace a portion of your lost pay, with it typically being two-thirds (66.6%) of the amount that you’d be paid on an average weekly basis. If you cannot go back to your job the compensation will typically cover two-thirds (66.6%) of the pay difference between a new position, and your old position.
  • Death benefits: Any surviving spouse, and dependent children are able to receive death benefits under the workers’ compensation claim, which also contributes to help with any funeral costs, and/or burial costs.
