The amount of your weekly workers’ compensation benefit check depends in part on whether you have a temporary total disability or temporary partial disability. Depending on the severity of the injury and the resulting limitations, your injuries could also be determined to be a permanent disability. The medical determination of your injury is a critically important aspect of your workers’ compensation case.
There are various factors that affect the length of time and the amount of benefits to which an injured worker is entitled. To make sure you get all of the wage loss replacement benefits and medical benefits you are entitled to, it is important to work with a lawyer who has extensive experience representing injured workers in the workers’ compensation area.
