Under Wisconsin law, people injured on the job may be entitled to the following workers compensation benefits:
- Payment of all medical bills related to treatment of work injury.
- Payment for medication expenses.
- If you are unable to work for more than 3 days following your injury, payment of temporary disability benefits for the time you are unable to work. While you are recovering from your injuries, temporary disability benefits will amount to approximately 2/3 of your normal wage.
- Temporary partial disability benefits for any period when you are able to go back to work but not on a full-time basis. These are a proportionate percentage of the temporary disability benefit.
- Reimbursement for your mileage to and from treatment appointments.
- Compensation, according to the formula set out in the Wisconsin Administrative Code and Statutes, for any permanent disability identified by your doctor.
- Other benefits also may be available.
