What is my employer required to pay if I am involved in a work accident?
If your injury is covered by workers' compensation benefits, your employer's workers' compensation insurance carrier must pay the following:
1) Any and all medical expenses related to the injury;
2) Weekly disability benefits checks for all periods you are out of work with written doctor's authorization;
3) A lump sum payment for permanents disabilities and/or lost wages you incurred after your treatment has finished.
