Yes. The law provides that the maximum rate of benefits is 90 percent of the state average weekly wage for the year prior to the injury.
You cannot receive benefits higher than this amount regardless of how high your earnings might have been.
For the ordinary injury there is no minimum benefit. However, if you suffer a specific loss you are entitled to a minimum benefit equal to 25 percent of the state average weekly wage.
The same applies if you are totally and permanently disabled. In the case of death, the dependents of a deceased worker are entitled to a minimum benefit equal to 50 percent of the state average weekly wage.
