If you are hurt at work and file a workers' compensation claim, you should receive treatment paid by your employer's insurance company.
When you are done treating, if the doctor releases you with an impairment rating, or if you have a non-surgical scar that can be seen at least eight feet away, you are entitled to compensation for the permanent nature of the injury.
The amount of compensation is dependent on a number of factors, such as degree of impairment, age, educational background, work history, compensation rate, body part or parts affected, your residual functional capacity, your loss of earning capacity, and the size and nature of any lasting scar.
