Under workers' compensation laws, many states limit the right to recovery of an injured worker. An injured worker generally has a right to recover for loss of income. However, workers' compensation laws typically cap the amount of weekly wages used to determine your right to recovery. Due to the different aspects of each state's law and the specific requirements and limitations within that law, it is recommended that you consult with an attorney who is familiar with workers' compensation law in the state where you work. Be sure that you receive the maximum amount of income benefits to which you are entitled. For more information on workers' compensation, contact a qualified attorney.
