Attorneys Ready To Help You With TTD Or TPD

Even if you take care of your medical costs after your workplace injury, you will soon find that there are other financial consequences. Your lost wages can add up quickly. Luckily, there are solutions for people who are unable to return to work right away because of a temporary disability suffered at work:

  • Temporary total disability (TTD): If you are unable to return to your old job and your employer is unable to accommodate your disability, your employer must pay you TTD benefits equal to two-thirds of your previous weekly wage.
  • Temporary partial disability (TPD): If you are able to return to work, but you cannot perform the same tasks because of your injury, you may be making less money. You are entitled to two-thirds of the difference between your current wages and your previous wages through TPD benefits.

Your employer should start making TTD or TPD payments within 14 days of receiving notice of your injury. If your employer fails to pay you promptly without explanation, you can file a petition to order it to make payments.
