Benefits for seriously injured workers

Your support team

Each seriously injured/severely impaired worker has a support team from our Serious Injury Program. Your support team meets together to learn about your case and find the best solution for you. Your team will have:

  • a Case Manager
  • an Occupational Therapist
  • a Nurse Consultant

Who are severely impaired workers?

We consider impairment to be severe if the degree of impairment:

  • is permanent and you receive a 60% or more non-economic loss (NEL) benefit in one or more files;
  • is permanent and is recognized, in one or more claims, by permanent disability (PD) benefits totaling 100%; or
  • is, in the opinion of a WSIB health care professional, likely permanent, and at a 60% or more NEL or a 100% PD benefit.
