Your average weekly wage is calculated using the 52 weeks before the date of the accident and is the gross wage, that is, before taxes. Payments in compensation are calculated based on your average weekly wage, your degree of disability according to your doctor, and the degree of disability, according to the insurance company's consultant. If your employer continues to pay you full wages during the period when you are out of work with a disability, they will have an opportunity to request reimbursement from your awards for wages paid.
