If your injury or illness is compensable:
Benefits will be paid beginning on the eighth day after the injury. You should receive your first benefit check within 14 days after you notify your employer of the injury.
If you miss work for more than 42 days you will then receive compensation for the first seven days following the injury date. Any additional compensation for permanent disability, such as an amputated limb, will be determined after you return to work or at the end of the healing period.http://www.laworks.net/WorkersComp/R...epsInjured.asp
