If you are disabled, you may be entitled to monetary compensation through workers’ compensation benefits. Depending on the specific details of your case, claimants may be awarded different amounts based on the extent of their disability, type of disability, and whether it is permanent, partial, or temporary. Permanent partial disability (PPD) compensation are income loss and medical benefits that are distributed to individuals that are not entirely disabled and can return to work in a altered responsibility or lower-paying manner. If you can work but are making less income than you were before the accident, your income loss compensation will be based on a percentage of the difference between your previous and current income. The wage calculations are determined based on a statutory formula. Please contact our lawyers and we will determine what your compensation rate should be.

Permanent partial disability compensation may last up to 500 weeks from the date of your accident or disability. On the other hand, temporary total disability (TTD) compensation can last indefinitely for the rest of your life and start one week from the date you were last employed. Temporary total disability compensation is also based on a portion of your average weekly income up to a set maximum amount.
During this period, your status can be modified to permanent partial disability if following an impairment rating evaluation (IRE) where a doctor decides you have obtained maximum medical improvement (MMI.)
