Less Obvious Damages That Can Be Covered by Workers’ Compensation

Less Obvious Damages That Can Be Covered by Workers’ Compensation

Most people know that when they are injured at work and need to seek medical attention as a result, they will be able to make a claim for workers’ compensation. However, many injured workers do not realize the extent of the expenses that can be covered.

Dealing with a work-related injury can be a stressful time, and it can lead to financial suffering even after workers’ compensation is paid out. This is why it is vital that you do not miss out on any opportunity to claim the compensation that you deserve. The following are some less obvious financial damages that you can claim back through workers’ compensation.

Mileage to and from appointments

Necessary medical care will be compensated through workers’ compensation; however, many injured workers still suffer financially due to the cost of getting to appointments. It is possible to claim compensation for transportation costs associated with your injury. This is particularly significant if you need to travel long distances to get to specialized hospitals.

Treatment for mental health issues

Many people experience trauma or depression after being involved in a serious accident. It is important that you get the help you need to work on your mental health as well as your physical health. Expenses for counseling and therapy can be claimed back as part of your workers’ compensation coverage as long as you can show that the treatment is associated with your injury at work.

If you want to make sure you are getting the full amount of workers’ compensation that you deserve, you should take the time to understand the law in Georgia.
