A. You are entitled to receive replacement income, medical expenses and vocational rehabilitation benefits, if appropriate. The rehabilitation benefits can include on the job training, schooling, or job placement assistance. Disability compensation is typically paid at a rate of two-thirds of your average wage, up to a fixed ceiling. If you become permanently unable to do the work you were doing prior to the injury, or unable to do any work at all, you may be eligible to receive long-term or lump-sum benefits. The amount of the payment you may be entitled to receive will vary depending upon the nature and extent of your injury.
