Types of Workers’ Compensation Benefits

If you sustained an injury at work, or you contracted an occupational illness, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits under Wisconsin law. This type of compensation is meant to provide financial relief to employees who have suffered injuries or illnesses at work.

Workers' compensation can help pay for:

  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Medical bills
  • Disability-related expenses

Workers' Comp Requirements in Wisconsin

In Wisconsin, employers with more than 3 employees must have workers’ compensation insurance coverage. Employers with less than 3 employees must have workers’ compensation insurance if they pay $500 or more in wages in any quarter of the calendar year. For farm workers, employers who have 6 or more employees for at least 20 calendar days each year are required to carry workers' compensation insurance.

The following groups are all considered employees and are therefore covered under workers' comp:

  • Part-time employees
  • Full-time employees
  • Family members
  • Minors
  • Corporate officers

What Is the Statute of Limitations for Workers' Comp Claims in Wisconsin?

If you have been injured on the job, it is important to notify your employer within 30 days. For occupational diseases, you have 30 days from the date you discover the disability to notify your employer. However, the final statute of limitations for workers' comp claims in Wisconsin is 2 years. If you did not know about the injury early on, you may still be able to receive compensation as long as you notify your employer within 2 years from the date of the accident.

Our Clients Are Our Partners

When we opened Cooper Law Group, we had one goal in mind. Instead of the traditional attorney/client approach, our Milwaukee workers' compensation attorneys set out to form a law practice focusing on one critical success factor – managing cases from our clients’ perspective. This mindset compels our attorneys to take a fundamentally different approach with everyone we represent.

Our representation and case management activities are centered around a series of litigation protocols – intended to change the way old, outdated law firms practice. These “protocols” were created to solve three basic problems:

  1. Create better/quicker case results;
  2. Create a dynamic collaboration & synergy between you and your lawyer;
  3. create accountability throughout the process. In a few words – we do law differently.

How Do We Implement These Protocols and Create an Innovative Experience?
