In the blink of an eye, a workplace accident can lead to serious injuries and disability. If you have been hurt at work, you may be eligible for workers' compensation benefits, which include, but are not limited to the following:
Coverage of all reasonable and necessary medical costs.
Benefits for temporary wage loss (Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) or Temporary Total Disability (TTD) sustained by an employee while recovering from an injury. Eligibility for temporary disability benefits is determined and must be documented by a doctor. Benefits for temporary wage loss due to disability are based on two-thirds of employee's wage rate up to a specified maximum amount.
Benefits for permanent disability [Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) or Permanent Total Disability (PTD)] if the employee does not fully recover from the injury. Permanent disability is awarded for the potential, or actual, loss of earning capacity. The amount of payment for permanent disability depends on the seriousness of the permanent disability.
