It is important to note that this is not an exhaustive list and workers’ compensation claims may be made for any injury or illness caused by work-related activities.
Workers’ compensation typically covers injuries or illnesses that occur as a result of work-related activities. Some of the things that can be claimed under workers’ compensation include:
- Medical expenses: This includes any reasonable and necessary medical expenses related to the injury or illness, such as doctor’s visits, hospital stays, prescription medication, physiotherapy, and rehabilitation.
- Lost wages: If the injury or illness causes the worker to miss work, workers’ compensation can cover lost wages. This may be paid as a percentage of the worker’s normal wages or as a lump sum payment.
- Permanent impairment: If the injury or illness results in a permanent impairment, such as a loss of function or disability, workers’ compensation can cover compensation for the loss of function or disability.
- Lump sum payments: Depending on the nature and severity of the injury, workers’ compensation may also provide a lump sum payment to compensate the worker for their pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life or loss of income-earning capacity.
- Death benefits: If a worker dies as a result of a work-related injury or illness, workers’ compensation can provide death benefits to the worker’s dependents.
It’s important to note that the specific types of benefits available and the process for making a claim can vary depending on the state or territory in which the worker is employed.
