When you are injured on the job and make a workers' compensation claim, you are entitled to receive a number of benefits which can not only aid in your recovery, but can help support you financially by taking care of some or all of the financial burden placed on you as a result of the injury. In addition, workers' compensation can extend indefinitely if you are permanently disabled as a result of your job. All of this is dependent on a number of factors, including a doctor's evaluation and prognosis as to your ability to recover.
