After you have been injured, and while you are still being treated by your doctors, you will be entitled to receive either Temporary Total Disability (TTD) or Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) benefits based on your injury.
Temporary Total Disability – TTD
If you are disabled and are unable to do any work at all, then you will be entitled to receive temporary total disability benefits (TTD). These benefits will be 2/3 of your average weekly wage. If you are partially disabled, meaning that you can do some work, but not work full time, then you fit into the temporary partial disability (TPD) category.
Temporary Partial Disability – TPD
If you are disabled but are still able to work at a part-time or reduced level, you are still entitled to temporary partial disability (TPD) to help make up the income lost from your injury. These benefits, like temporary total disability (TTD), generally add up to 2/3 of the lost income from your injury.
If the insurance company does not agree to pay you the benefits to which you are entitled, Steve Gurwin will negotiate with the adjuster or the attorney for the insurance company to get you the benefits you deserve. If he is not able to successfully get the insurance company to pay you what you deserve, then he will take the insurance company to court before a workers’ compensation judge.
