Medical Expenses for your Milwaukee workers compensation claim
Wisconsin Workers’ compensation covers all of an injured worker’s reasonable and necessary medical expenses. These expenses include the costs of transportation to and from the hospital or treatment. We are often asked whether an injured worker is able to choose his or her doctor. An injured worker has the right to select any doctor who is licensed to practice in Wisconsin. If the injured worker changes doctors, he or she must notify his or her employer. The employer or its insurance company has the right to request an Independent Medical Examination (IME) by a doctor of its choosing.
Weekly Wage Loss for your Milwaukee workers compensation benefits
Wisconsin Workers’ compensation also covers two-thirds of the injured workers’ weekly wages. Depending on a worker’s injuries, these benefits can include:
- Temporary Total Disability (TTD) benefits: These benefits cover the time an injured worker is unable to perform any work due to his or her injuries.
- Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) benefits: These benefits are intended to compensate injured workers who are working part time or at a lower wage while recovering from workplace injuries.
If after reaching maximum medical improvement, a person still has medical problems that prevent him or her from working, he or she is eligible for permanent wage loss benefits. These benefits could include:
- Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) benefits: When a person sustains an injury that limits the type of work he or she can do, PPD benefits are to make up for the lost earning capacity. These benefits are determined by the type and severity of a person’s disability.
- Permanent Total Disability (PTD) benefits: When a worker’s injuries prevent him or her from ever working again, he or she will be eligible for weekly PTD benefits for life.
Under certain circumstances, injured employees can recover benefits for disfigurement, vocational rehabilitation and training for the use of artificial limbs. Death benefits may be available to surviving family members.
