- Lump Sum
Although payments are generally payable weekly, a lump sum award is used. Lump sums are often the result of a permanent partial disability award. Discuss lump sums with your workers' compensation attorney.
Injuries that happen during lunch are often compensable, meaning you can get workers' comp benefits. However, many exceptions exist: the going and coming rule, the length of the break, the timing of the break (did the employer tell you exactly when your lunch break was going to be?), and other specifics related to the lunch or break.
