What bills does workers compensation cover? What kind of income can I expect?

Workers compensation will provide for reasonable costs of medical treatment, temporary disability income for the lost wages you experience due to lost work and permanent disability income. The rate of compensation for lost wages is 70% of your average weekly wage, with a capped amount put in place by the state. You initially must be out of work for at least seven days, due to your injuries, before becoming eligible for temporary disability (benefits are retroactive to the first day). Medical benefits kick in on the date of your injury.
