When you sustain a workplace injury, you have a right to receive benefits to cover your medical expenses and lost wages. One of the most devastating injuries you can sustain at work is a traumatic brain injury (TBI), an injury that can have lifelong, debilitating consequences.
Under workers’ compensation, you have a right to receive benefits for:
- All related medical expenses
- All related rehabilitative expenses
- Attendant care, should it be necessary
- A percentage of your after-tax wages while you recover
Filing for workers’ compensation can be difficult under any circumstances, but it can be made even more so when you are suffering from the effects of TBI.
