How Workers' Compensation Benefits Are Calculated
In most cases, Texas employers are required to provide workers' compensation benefits to injured employees. These benefits are intended to help injured employees recover from their injuries and get back to work. However, many employers attempt to minimize their workers' compensation costs by calculating benefits in a way that is unfair to employees.
Workers' compensation benefits are calculated using a formula that takes into account the following:
- The worker's average weekly earnings
- The length of time the worker is unable to work
- The extent of the worker's injuries
Employers may attempt to reduce the average weekly earnings used in the calculation by claiming that the worker was only earning a weekend or part-time salary. They may also claim that the worker's injuries are not as severe as they are claiming. If an employer is trying to deny or reduce your benefits, you need an experienced workers' compensation attorney in Laredo to fight for you.
