Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Workers’ comp benefits cover your medical expenses and a portion of your lost wages. You also get reimbursement for traveling to medical appointments. In some cases, workers receive vocational rehabilitation and additional compensation for permanent injuries, disfigurement and scarring.
Workers’ comp and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits sometimes overlap. If you are eligible for both, Daniel B. Scott will ensure that you get the maximum possible benefits you are allowed.
