What Are the Common Types of Workers’ Compensation Benefits?

There are three primary types of compensation that injured workers and their loved ones can get after workplace injuries:

  • Injury benefits—When you get hurt because of someone else’s negligence, you deserve compensation for any medical treatment you required, and the pain you’ve suffered. Common workplace injuries include:
    • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
      TBIs often occur at construction sites or other workplaces where workers are required to wear hard hats. Workers who suffer TBIs may develop physical and mental disabilities that prevent them from returning to their jobs.
    • Back Injuries
      Back injuries are common in occupations that require heavy lifting or bending at the back or waist throughout the day. Over time, back injuries can become chronic, and the pain can make it difficult to go back to work.
    • Amputation
      Workers who use industrial equipment, including saws and other heavy machinery, may be at risk of crushing injuries that require amputation. The loss of limbs can make it impossible for some workers to perform their jobs.
  • Future benefits—Workplace injuries don’t always heal right away, and many victims deal with the aftermath of on-the-job accidents for years or even decades. That’s why it’s our goal to help victims get compensation for ongoing expenses such as:
    • Medical Bills
      Medical treatment can be expensive, and the costs can quickly add up over time. Workers’ compensation benefits can help ease the costs of lifelong medical procedures, prescription medications, and physical rehabilitation.
    • Lost Wages
      Many workplace injuries leave victims unable to work for years or even the rest of their lives. By applying for future workers’ compensation benefits, you may be eligible to receive money to replace some of your future lost income.
  • Death benefits—It can be devastating to lose a loved one in a workplace accident, especially if they were a primary income-earner for your household. However, workers’ compensation benefits will pay out to the following parties after fatal workplace accidents:
    • Spouse or Dependent Children
      If a deceased employee leaves behind one dependent—such as a spouse or dependent child—that dependent will be eligible to receive up to 50 percent of their loved one’s average weekly wage. If the deceased worker leaves behind two or more dependents, then those dependents’ benefits may increase up to 66 percent of the weekly wage.
    • Estate
      A deceased employee with no spouse or dependent children will have his or her workers’ compensation benefits up to $20,000 paid to his or her estate.

No matter what type of on-the-job injury you or your loved one suffered, or the type of compensation you need to move forward with your life, our Nashville workers’ compensation attorneys will do their best to help you get the money you deserve.

Why Do You Need a Lawyer for Your Workers’ Compensation Claim?

Tennessee requires that almost all employers in the state carry workers’ compensation insurance. And while that insurance is supposed to protect injured workers and their families after on-the-job accidents, getting approved for benefits isn’t always a cut-and-dry process. In fact, employers are often reluctant to even admit that an accident happened, let alone cooperate with injured workers. In addition, the workers’ compensation board has strict criteria for approving claims.

When you’re dealing with the aftermath of a workplace injury, the last thing you need is for your or your loved one’s employer to give you the runaround or to deal with an uncooperative workers’ compensation case manager. That’s where we come in. While you rest and focus on recovering from your injuries, you can count on our legal team to use our experience, knowledge, and resources to maximize your chances of getting your claim approved.

Don’t risk getting denied or getting less money than you deserve. Contact us today for a free consultation, and let us take some of the stress of the accident off your shoulders.

    Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
