Vermont Workers’ Compensation Benefits
If you have been injured on the job, you are probably entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. In general, workers’ compensation laws require workers’ comp to:
- Pay your medical bills
- Pay you a weekly check for your time out of work
- Pay you for permanent injury you have suffered
- Assist you in finding other employment if you can’t return to your former job
Workers’ comp will also pay benefits to families of people who die in workplace accidents, or from illness or injuries caused by their job.
