There is Financial Compensation and Employment Help Available if You are Injured on the Job
There are several types of benefits available, including:
Medical care, which pays the bills for the medical care necessary to treat your injury. Some companies will refer you to a particular doctor, but you have the right to choose your own doctor. Your benefits will pay for the care you need both now and in the future.
Vocational retraining if you are unable to return to your previous career. In the event your on-the-job injury leaves you with a permanent disability that prevents you from resuming your previous work, you may qualify for vocational retraining to help your transition to another job that meets your physical limitations.
Monetary awards for permanent injuries can be obtained if you are still physically impaired after maximum medical treatment. The monetary award you may be entitled to compensates you for the physical loss of function. Depending on your impairments, you may receive a “permanent partial” or “permanent total” disability award.
