For Maryland it's 70% of pay, tax free. I do believe it depends on state law. I know that in Maryland the first 3 days of injury Workers Compensation will not pay you, you either need to take sick or vacation leave. Do think about getting a lawyer so you can better understand your rights. Lawyers who specialize in Workers Compensation law normally do not require you to pay them, they charge a % based on if they get money for you from Workers Compensation. This should be something that does not come out of your pocket, If they do not get any money for you. Workers Compensation should pay for: Any medical expenses, procedures, or surgeries due to injury/illness received at work. Medications needed due to injuries. If you need in home care via nurse. Lost wages (including over time) minus the first 3 days of injury. Gas expenses by mileage to and from the doctors office and hospitals. Parking fees (this may need to be reimbursed) Tips; It is ALWAYS your right to be treated by the doctor(s) of YOUR choice, Workmens Compensation may require you to seek a 2nd opinion from a dooctor of their choice, however you do not HAVE to receive treatment from that doctor, you may have to see that doctor only for a 2nd opinion to keep receiving your benefits. It is a good idea to get a binder with tabs, and to keep all correspondance in with / from workmens compensation, doctors, diagnosis, tests preformed, work, hospitals, receipts, bills, pay stubs (from either work or pay from workers compensation) Keep detailed lists of doctors appointments dates and time. Keep all doctor appointments, either scheduled by you or Workmens Compensation. Take notes when speaking to your Workmens Compensation Case Manager or Nurse with: Name of person whom you speak with, Name of Doctors office, Date and Time and what the conversation is about. Good luck! Best wishes for a speedy recovery!
