What is my workers’ compensation claim worth? Omaha, NE
We Answer your questions about the law
What is my Nebraska workers’ compensation claim worth? In order to answer that question, we have to know the specific facts of your case. A lot of factors go into the value of a workers’ compensation case.
First of all, money benefits that are paid to you are based on your wages before the accident. That amount is used then to determine both your temporary disability benefits and your permanent disability benefits.
Temporary disability benefits is money that you receive while you're off of work or while you earn less because of restrictions after the accident. Once you reach maximum medical improvement, you may be entitled to permanent disability benefits if you have permanent impairment or permanent restrictions.
You may also be entitled to vocational rehabilitation and of course, you receive medical benefits. All of those benefits combine to make up the value of your workers’ compensation claim.
But because each case is so different, it's impossible to tell you what all claims are worth. If you have received an offer of settlement in your workers’ compensation claim, you can contact us at High & Younes for a free evaluation of whether the settlement is fair.
