Available Workers' Compensation Benefits in Wisconsin
Injured On The Job? Contact Sigman Janssen
Almost all workplaces are required to carry workers’ compensation coverage to protect their employees if they’re injured on the job. Wisconsin workers’ compensation laws can provide you with many available benefits to help cover your medical bills and replace your lost wages. If you’ve been hurt at work, these can include:
- benefits for permanent partial disability or permanent total disability,
- benefits for temporary wage loss during the healing period,
- coverage of all reasonable and necessary medical expenses,
- vocational rehabilitation and retraining,
- and death benefits and burial expenses for beneficiaries.

We Understand Workers’ Compensation Laws
Workers’ compensation benefits can be complicated and difficult to understand. Our workers’ compensation lawyers in Appleton know how the system works, and we can help you get the benefits you need. Depending on the severity of your injury and the length of time you may be out of work, you may qualify for the following benefits:
- Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) and Temporary Total Disability (TTD)
These benefits are provided to workers while they are recovering from their injuries. Eligibility for TPD and TTD benefits is determined by your doctor, and these benefits are usually equal to two-thirds of your wages up to a specified maximum amount for the duration of your disability.
- Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) and Permanent Total Disability (PTD)
Workers who aren’t expected to recover from their injuries may be eligible to receive permanent disability benefits. PPD benefits are given to impaired workers who may still be able to handle light work, while PTD benefits are given to those who are unable to perform any work.
