A worker who received an injury in the scope of his or her employment is eligible for Workers Compensation Benefits. These benefits are calculated using your average weekly wages in the year before the injury was suffered. Most wages are paid at 2/3 of your average weekly wage, although there is a minimum and maximum wage that will be paid. If you receive an injury at work, you have an obligation under the law to report the injury to your employer promptly. Failure to notify your employer can result in you losing eligibility for compensation benefits. You should contact your attorney as soon as you can in this process, so that you do not miss out on any requirements for receiving your benefits.
