Receiving Wage Loss Compensation When You’re Unable To Work
Most people do not work hard every day simply because they love the work they are doing. Although many people enjoy the work they do, the majority of Americans spend hours working to help ensure they receive the paychecks they need to financially support themselves and their families.
However, if a workplace accident is preventing you from working, you may be concerned about how you will receive the compensation you deserve to make ends meet. Thankfully, workers’ compensation laws in North Carolina allow injured workers to receive the financial support they need, and our lawyers help ensure individuals throughout Wilmington receive the wage loss compensation to which they’re entitled.
At David & Associates, we have 100 years of experience providing individuals with the aggressive legal counsel they need after workplace accidents, and we can help protect your rights.
Understanding How Wage Loss Benefits Are Calculated
If you have a workers’ compensation claim and you’re unable to work, you’re entitled to benefits. But how much compensation are you entitled to receive? At a very basic level, wage loss benefits offer injured workers two-thirds of their average weekly wages. However, because there are different ways to calculate that sum, we argue for the method that benefits our clients the most.
Our attorneys also help ensure our clients receive any other compensation benefits they are owed, including wages from previous months or medical coverage.
