Hi, I'm attorney Andre’ Ramsay. Your workers' compensation attorney. Now, how much does an insurance company have to pay you while you are out of work? The answer is, it depends.
So, I based off of the calculation. Workers' compensation insurance companies have to pay you two thirds of the average weekly wage up to a maximum of $550. The maximum depends on your date of injury. That's why you need to call us so, we can let you know which date of injury falls under which maximum amount of income.

Now, that means if you are delta pilot and you earn $150 000 a year, now, based on income benefits that you're receiving from the insurance company, you're making about $28 000 a year. That's a huge bill to swallow. Which is why, you need us to help you.
Yeah so, if you are factory worker or are working in a plant, then your income benefits may significantly reduce based off of what is necessary for workers' compensation that pay you, because they only have to give you two thirds of your average weekly wage.
