The type of workers’ compensation benefits you obtain depends on a number of factors, including the severity of the injury, the body part affected and how long it impairs your ability to work. At Stoltze & Stoltze, PLC, we can advise you on the different types of workers’ compensation claims, including:
- Temporary partial disability: If your injury prevents you from working full time, but you are still able to work some hours, temporary partial disability can help you obtain benefits to make up for hours lost due to your injury.
- Temporary total disability: If your injury keeps you out of work for a temporary period, temporary total disability can cover two-thirds of your lost wages, paid out weekly.
- Permanent partial disability: If you have finished healing and are still partially disabled, you are entitled to permanent partial disability benefits.
- Permanent total disability: If your injury completely and permanently keeps you from working, you are entitled to permanent total disability benefits, which cover you for life.
