Workers compensation usually covers several benefits for injured employees. - It will pay for your medical bills, as well as up to two thirds of your usual paycheck for a time period set by your state. - Workers' comp payments are tax free, and are meant to help you to live reasonably comfortably while you are recovering. Some states also offer vocational rehabilitation, such as different classes and training, if you are unable to return to your previous job. If you are considered permanently disabled after an accident on the job, you may also be entitled to a lump sum payment or long term payments from workers' comp. It is important to contact your workers' comp office as soon as you can, because long term benefits can be tough to obtain.
