Workers' Compensation Benefits

The type of compensation an injured worker may receive can depend on many factors, including the type of injury sustained, how long they were out of work and the type of workers’ comp insurance the employer has.

Typically, Louisiana workers’ comp benefits include:

  • Medical benefits: Coverage includes doctor visits, medication, physical therapy, lab tests, and further reasonable and necessary doctor bills.
  • Disability compensations: The type of benefits a person may receive is often based on the injury. A person who suffers from temporary partial disability or temporary total disability will likely receive benefits for less time than a person who suffers from a permanent disability. Lost wage benefits are typically two-thirds of an employee’s average weekly salary. If an employee is unable to return to their previous position they may also receive two-thirds of the difference between their current and previously earned average weekly wages.
  • Rehabilitation services: These benefits assist an injured worker in finding a new occupation if they are unable to return to their previous occupation due to the injury.
  • Death benefits: If an employee is fatally injured or passes away due to a fatal occupational disease, the victim’s family may be entitled to receive assistance for burial expenses. In 2012, the limit on burial expenses was increased to $8,500. Furthermore, lost wage benefits may also be extended to assist dependent children who lost a parent due to a fatal workplace injury or illness.
