Lost Wages Workers’ Comp in Portland, OR
After you’ve been injured on the job, you have quite a few things that you worry about. However, with the guidance you’ll find at the Law Offices of Peter O. Hansen, you can have more peace of mind throughout the entire workers’ compensation process.
Getting injured takes more of a toll on your finances than simply having additional medical costs--you also get paid less than you would have made had you not been injured. Typically, if you are on temporary disability benefits, you receive two-thirds of your typical paycheck. However, if you are authorized by a doctor to light work, you can qualify for lost wages workers’ comp in Portland, OR.
Lost wage compensation comes if you do lighter work and get paid less for it. This benefit makes up the difference between your new and old salary. If you become medically stationary and won’t be able to recover enough to perform your old job, you may receive compensation for future lost wages presented in a lump sum.
