How much does workers comp pay in Wisconsin for a back injury, depends on several factors. First, a doctor must state you have a work-related permanent injury at the end of the healing period. Then Wisconsin law says you are entitled to permanent partial disability benefits or a settlement, but we have to look at the statute schedule for the amount depending on the body part injury.
Certified nurse assistant or CNA workers comp causation in Wisconsin concerns low back disability and neck injury. CNA jobs are essential to our society and economy because certified nurse assistants provide the care to our elderly parents and grandparents as well as our disabled brothers and sisters. CNA work is difficult in every way and CNAs deserve our respect, admiration and compassion. When a CNA gets hurt at work, they should get workers compensation not a cold shoulder denial.
Workers comp closed my case according to a letter from the adjuster and Denied My Claim. Not accurate. The insurance company can deny paying more benefits and close their file, but they cannot close your case. Only you and the Wisconsin Worker's Compensation Division Department can close the claim. The insurance companies write their denial letters so the injured worker is led to believe that once the adjuster denies the claim, that's it, case closed. Actually, the denial letter is the first salvo fired in the battle to get the injured worker the worker's compensation benefits due. Most worker's compensation claims in Wisconsin are open for 12 years from the date of injury or the last date indemnity benefits are paid. With a serious head, neck or back injury, to get the best results it is advisable to consult with an experienced worker's compensation attorney once the injured worker receives a denial or case closed letter from the insurance company. At McCormick Law Office we offer free consultation to help determine if there are more worker's compensation benefits an injured worker is entitled to.
