Do I still get paid if I get injured at work?

After you have been injured at work, and have reported your injury to your supervisor, the process to potential compensation begins. Your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company will determine if your injury will qualify for compensation. Additionally, if you have missed more than seven days of work, it may pay you temporary disability payments.

Temporary disability pay will amount to 70 percent of your regular wages, so long as that amount falls within the minimum and maximum allowable payment range. These benefits will continue until you are cleared to return to work in some capacity or you have reached maximum medical improvement (MMI), which is the point at which additional treatments and therapies will not further benefit your healing.
