Workers Compensation Disability

After the initial injury, it is important that you work with a workers' compensation attorney to determine what type of disability you may be eligible for, including:

  • Temporary disability – This is available to you if you are only partially unable to perform specific tasks at your workplace. Two thirds of your weekly wages could be paid to you if you qualify.
  • Permanent total disability - If you qualify for this benefit, you may receive a lump sum of two thirds of your pay or receive the pay on a weekly basis.
  • Permanent partial disability – Total disability means you are unable to fully return to work and you will receive a payment based on the injury you received, your pre-injury wages and other factors that your attorney can discuss.
