There are several different types of injury scenarios and varying levels of compensation when considering workers’ compensation. In some workers’ compensation cases, the injured victim experiences total temporary disability. If you qualify for these benefits, your employer or their insurance company will be required to pay compensation for the entire duration of your inability to work. Typically the amount of compensation awarded is determined by averaging income rates but in some instances, it can even include overtime considerations. In some instances, though, a doctor can release you for light duty if it is available with your employer. However, if no light duty opportunities exist, they will still be required to pay you compensation.
