Dear Anonymous,

 

If you miss more than 21 days of work from a work-related injury, you are entitled to Temporary Total Disability benefits (TTD).  TTD is 2/3 of your "average weekly wage."  If your injury is permament, you are entitled to payment for any Permanent Partial Impairment, (PPI).  Your PPI rating will be determined by the company's workers compensation doctor.  However, if you disagree with the company doctor's PPI rating, you can seek out a rating from a doctor of your own choosing.  You will have to pay for this evaluation.  If you have additional questions, you should contact an experienced workers compensation attorney.

 

Best,

Workers Compensation
Have you been injured on the job or diagnosed with an occupational illness? Most employees in most states are covered by workers' compensation insurance, which provides certain benefits in the event of an on-the-job accident or occupational disease. Workers' compensation attorneys can guide you through the process of applying for benefits or appealing a denied claim. You should also consult with a lawyer if you've been approved for workers' comp benefits but feel as if you haven't received all of the benefits you deserve, or if you've been accused of workers' compensation fraud.
