Wage Loss Benefits
Receiving a Portion of Pay
After an injury, many people feel frightened and concerned about where their income is going to come from while they recuperate. If you are the sole earner of your household, then being injured on the job can create serious stress and have you facing the possibility of losing your home, car, and belongings. Sometimes, the injured person cannot return to work ever or must go to an alternate job that pays significantly less than what they may have been receiving at their previous place of employment. If you have been injured and fear that wage loss is imminent, or if it has already started to be withheld, then contact Meyerkord & Meyerkord today to speak with an attorney.
Working Wage Loss
If you are still able to work but take a dock in pay because of medical restrictions, then you may be able to receive compensation. Even if you are still working at the same company but in a different position than the one that you were previously employed in, you may still be eligible.
Non-Working Wage Loss
In the event that your injury leaves you completely unable to work, you will be able to receive non-working wage loss benefits. These benefits will be a portion of your pay, usually about two-thirds, and can be given to you on a weekly basis or as one large lump sum.
