Insurers often miscalculate an Employee’s average weekly wage. Even a slight miscalculation of an Employee’s average weekly wage can result in a significant underpayment of benefits. There are often special considerations the Insurer ignores such as seasonal effects on an Employee’s earnings, or overtime earnings. Construction workers have a special formula for calculating their average weekly wage.
