Helping Workers Collect Wage Loss Benefits
There are more categories than simply working or not working, and workers’ compensation law takes these into account. Wage loss benefits are available to people who are looking for a job and to people who are working fewer hours or for less pay than they did prior to a workplace accident. Furthermore, vocational rehabilitation benefits are available for injured workers who need to transition into a new field of employment.
At the Philip J. Fulton Law Office, our attorneys understand the full range of wage loss benefits available. With more than 35 years of experience on our side, we are able to quickly assess your situation and lock in on the benefits that you are eligible for. We will move forward, taking action to get you everything you need to move forward with your life.
Working Wage Loss Benefits
What happens when a person suffers an injury serious enough to prevent him or her from returning to the previous line of work? What happens if the job that person can do only pays half of what he or she earned previously? What happens if there are not as many hours available? Wage loss benefits are available. These benefits will make up the difference between the person’s old and new paycheck for 200 weeks.
Nonworking Wage Loss Benefits
If a person suffers an injury that forces him or her to look for another line of work, the job search can take time; especially in the current economic climate where jobs are not plentiful. As long as the person is making a good faith effort to find a new job, wage loss benefits are available. This is an important benefit to help people transition back into the workforce.
