Benefits You Should Receive

What Benefits You Should Receive

Many workplace injuries require major surgery and extensive rehabilitation, especially those involving your back, neck, or spinal cord.

Even when medical treatment is successful, you may be left with permanent disabilities. The insurance companies routinely refuse to acknowledge the full extent of your injuries. They will try to deny or underpay your claim for benefits.

If your insurer scheduled an independent medical examination or refused coverage for a surgery your doctor says you need, call the Law Offices of Jeffrey Klemp LLC at 715-514-1999 for a FREE consultation.

You'll feel confident that you'll get the benefits you are entitled to under the law when you call Jeffrey Klemp. As an attorney with over 25 years of experience, Jeffrey knows the process and tactics that your opponent will try to use.

Types of Benefits Available

Under Wisconsin workers' compensation law, you need to remember that it is your doctor who determines the benefits you need and NOT the insurance company. If the insurance company does dispute any recommendations, contact Jeffrey Klemp at 715-514-1999.

A few of the benefits that may be available to you include:
  • Expenses related to medical treatment: These covers every doctor and hospital expense from MRI tests to major surgeries. They also cover prescription medications, prosthetics and related training expenses, physical therapy and even certain traveling expenses.
  • Temporary partial and total disability: Most injuries leave you unable to work at all or with restricted duties for a period of time. These benefits cover temporary disability until you are able to return to work.
  • Permanent partial disability: You may meet the definition of healed, but you aren't the same. These benefits cover permanent loss of physical or mental capabilities.
  • Loss of earning capacity: The partial loss of function may prevent you from returning to your old job, but still allow you to perform a gainful activity. If your new earning capacity is lower, you are eligible for benefits that compensate you for this loss.
  • Retraining benefits: A vocational expert may determine that you can perform certain types of jobs, but you may not have the necessary training to be hired for those jobs. You can receive compensation to pay for the necessary education.
  • Permanent total disability: If your doctor determines that you will be unable to perform any gainful employment, you are eligible for permanent disability benefits for life.
  • Disfigurement and amputations: Some injuries are considered so severe that you are able to obtain special benefits.
If you were fired for getting hurt, you can seek wage loss benefits for up to 1 year.
