What workers’ compensation covers in Montana
Workers’ compensation covers a wide range of expenses associated with workplace injuries or illnesses. According to the Montana State Fund (MSF), which oversees the state’s workers’ compensation system, such benefits include:
- Medical care costs related to your workplace injury or illness.
- Lost income while you are recovering from your illness or injury.
- Medications related to your work-related injury or illness.
- Some travel expenses for authorized medical treatment.
You may be eligible for different or additional benefits if your workplace injury results in a permanent disability. Specifically, if your doctor determines that your medical condition will not improve (a condition known as maximum medical improvement or MMI) for at least 21 days or longer, you may be eligible to receive long-term disability benefits.
You may also be eligible for different benefits depending on your job and the nature of your injury. Our law firm has extensive experience working with people injured on the job in Montana hurt in construction accidents, oil rig accidents, delivery truck driver accidents and cases involving injured firefighters.
