Generally, compensation benefits are payable beginning with the eighth day of the disability. Compensation will not be paid for the first seven days unless your disability lasts longer than 14 days. The first payment of compensation must begin no later than the 21st day after the employer knew of your injury. If you have not received compensation within this time, you should consult Schemery Zicolello to get help with filing your workers’ compensation claim.
