Qualifying for Workers’ Compensation

The means of compensation for your on-the-job injuries will depend on the circumstances of your accident. Most employers have a form of work injury insurance known as workers’ compensation. For most employees, this will be the exclusive way to recoup losses. You will need to forfeit your right to file a civil lawsuit against your employer in exchange for workers’ compensation benefits.

There are, however, some exceptions to the exclusive remedy provision, including:

  • Wrongful termination claims
  • Sexual harassment claims
  • Employment discrimination claims

Most of the time, the employee’s fault in the accident does not affect his or her ability to claim workers’ compensation.

An employee may not receive benefits if:

  • Their injuries were intentional or self-inflicted
  • They were intoxicated while injured at work
  • They were violating a company safety policy

Levels of Worker's Compensation

There are four different levels of worker's compensation you could receive based on the severity of your injury:

  • Temporary total disability (TTD) — Suffering a disability that completely prevents you from working for a short period of time.
  • Temporary partial disability (TPD) — You suffer an injury that prevents you from working at full capacity for a short period of time.
  • Permanent total disability (PTD) — Your injury prevents you from ever returning to the type of work you previously had.
  • Permanent partial disability (PPD) — You injury permanently prevents you from performing at full capacity and this reduces your level of earnings.

How much your payments will be and how long you receive them for are based on your wages before your injury and how long you will be unable to work.
