What are the compensatins under WICA?

I was recently injured at work. I was supposed to file a civil suit however I've heard that there are different types of compensations if I claim under WICA. This made me wonder which would be better. In order to make a proper decision, I want to know the different types of compensations under WICA.

    You can claim medical leave wages, medical expenses including your hospital bills, medication and other charges and lump sum compensation for permanent incapacity, if any, or death under WICA. The compensation for non-permanent ork injuries are Medical leave wages for working days covered by doctor granted MC or hospitalisation leave, up to one year from the date of the accident and Medical expenses related to work accident for medical treatment received within one year from the date of the accident, or up to a maximum of $36,000, whichever is reached first.
