Maximizing Your Temporary Disability Benefits
To qualify for workers’ compensation temporary disability benefits, you must seek medical attention. If your doctor determines that your injuries or illness will prevent you from performing your job duties, you can collect benefits. You may also collect temporary disability benefits if your doctor determines that you can return to work to perform some duties, but with certain limitations that your employer cannot, or will not, accommodate.
When you get temporary disability benefits, you will typically receive two-thirds of your average weekly wage, with a minimum of $242.86 a week and a maximum of $1,619.15 a week. Your benefits will last until you either return to work, you reach the statutory limit or your condition does not improve and you move to permanent disability benefits.
At Carter Law Center, we will work with you to help you qualify for the maximum benefits available to you. We have a deep understanding of the legal requirements and the steps you must take to file a successful claim.
