Workers’ compensation benefits vary state to state. The amount of compensation you could receive for any given injury or disability could range by as much as several hundred thousand dollars.
The state of Wisconsin has tends higher than most states on the scale of maximum compensation awarded for claims or loss, impairment or disability of certain body parts. Studies show that the national average for the loss of an arm is $169,878, compared to $201,250 paid out on average in Wisconsin (this is for loss or total disability of the limb).
The amount that you actually receive for a workers’ compensation claim often comes down to the manner in which the claim was prepared and handled. You need the money, however, to cover medical treatment, bills and lost wages. Getting a higher amount is not a luxury – it’s a necessity.
