Workers’ Comp Pay Exists For When You Cannot Work
Workers’ compensation insurance benefits cover medical care for treatment of workplace injuries as well as lost wages from being unable to work. The monetary benefits an injured worker receives are determined by the unique nature of the injury and his or her ability to return to work.
Temporary total disability (TTD) is a form of workers’ compensation benefits paid when an injured worker is completely unable to work because of his or her injury. TTD compensation is approximately two-thirds of the worker’s weekly wages at the time of injury, and payments are typically made on a weekly basis, starting 14 days after the employer is initially notified of the disability. After this initial waiting period, payments continue at the same interval as the injured worker’s typical wage payments were made.
Every case is different and there are variations to these rules depending on where wage calculations fall according to the minimum and maximum values outlined in the TTD statute. It is important to work with a lawyer who will handle your case directly and address your specific workers’ comp pay needs.
