If you are injured in a work-related accident and are temporarily disabled from working, you should receive weekly workers' compensation benefits. Many states' workers' compensation laws provide that injured employees be compensated for two-thirds of their average weekly wages, up to their maximum weekly wage. Sometimes, however, the workers' compensation check may be delayed for an unintentional reason. For example, there may be computer problems at the insurance office, key personnel may be on vacation or a new insurance adjuster may have been assigned to your case. In these instances, a telephone call should be made to the insurance carrier inquiring about the status of your weekly benefits. If, however, the insurance company has stopped paying your income benefits, you should determine the reason. Consulting with an attorney familiar with your state's workers' compensation law may help you determine if the insurance company is liable for stopping your benefit payments.
