What Your Workers’ Compensation Case is Worth

As our attorneys explain in the video, the value of your case is determined by:

  • How much your average weekly wage was in the year prior to your work injury. You are entitled to wage-loss benefits equal to two-thirds of this amount, up to state maximums.
  • Which body part was injured. Each body part entitles you to a specific number of weeks worth of benefits, such as 300 weeks for a back injury.
  • How badly your injury permanently affected your health and ability to work.
  • Your age, work experience, job duties and education.

No two workers have exactly the same situation. Determining the amount of benefits you are entitled to is a complicated process.
