Miami Temporary and Permanent Disability Benefits Attorneys

Worker's Compensation

Temporary Total Disability

If you are unable to work as a result of your injury, you are entitled to receive a percentage of the amount you previously earned. This percentage will be determined by calculating your average weekly wage based on the amount you earned during the three months prior to your injury. These benefits can last up to two years or 104 weeks. If you are not able to return to work at that time, you may be able to transition into receiving permanent total disability benefits.

Permanent Total Disability Benefits

Permanent total disability benefits are designed for injured workers who are not able to return to work in any capacity as a result of their injuries. These benefits continue indefinitely and, as a result, are much more difficult to obtain. Our experience with workers’ compensation insurance companies can be beneficial in these situations as we understand how to best present cases of injured workers case to demonstrate their need for permanent benefits.

If you are able to work, but in a reduced capacity, there are also partial disability benefits available.
