If you have experienced an injury at work or while engaging in a work-related activity, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation is designed to help injured individuals receive wage replacement benefits, medical treatment, and vocational rehabilitation.
At Arrington Schelin & Munsey, P.C., you can speak to a caring workers’ compensation attorney in Kingsport, TN and four other locations in Virginia and Tennessee.
Workers’ compensation will reimburse you for lost time from work as well as for medical expenses. Although workers’ compensation is a streamlined process, it requires a great deal of paperwork. Our team understands the details and can help you fill out paperwork without stress.
Are you worried your expenses won’t be paid in full? We can help you receive all of the health benefits you are entitled to. In most cases you choose the physician best suited to your case from a list provided by your employer.
Workers’ compensation amounts vary depending on the length and extent of disability:
- Temporary Total Disability (TTD) payments are given after determining your average weekly wage. These payments are capped at a weekly maximum rate.
- Permanent Total Disability (PTD) payments are awarded for certain types of catastrophic injuries. This payment is subject to maximum total on a weekly basis.
- Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) payments are awarded for injuries resulting in a permanent loss of function in one or more parts of the body.
If a family member has suffered an on-the-job injury that results in death, an allowance for funeral and burial expenses is also available.
At Arlington Schelin & Munsey, P.C., we handle every case and client with care and respect. We understand how vulnerable you may feel during an uncertain time. Let us meet with you to address all your concerns. We take a personalized approach to law when it matters most.
