Regarding medical expenses, workers' comp is expected to pay for all of your medical care for as long as it is needed after an on-the-job injury. Your employer's insurance carrier may dispute how much care you need or for how long, and they may force you to undergo an Independent Medical Examination in an attempt to cut off benefits early. Your workers' compensation attorney will know how to respond to these attacks on your benefits. The amount and duration of wage replacement benefits depend on your injury. Common wage loss benefits include: Temporary Total Disability TTD benefits equal 66% of your regular wages up to a weekly maximum, for the duration of your disability or up to 104 weeks. In the case of some severe injuries, you can receive as much as 80% of your regular wages for as long as six months. Temporary Partial Disability If you are able to work on a restricted or light duty assignment but at lower pay below 80% of your pre-injury wage, TPD benefits will make up the difference. Once you've reached a level of maximum medical improvement, if you are still disabled, you may be eligible for permanent total disability benefits based on your impairment rating. You may be eligible for Social Security Disability as well. SSD benefits are notoriously difficult to obtain, and most people who apply for social security disability are denied. Kobal Law is experienced in both workers' compensation and social security disability law and can pursue both claims for you where applicable.
