When you are hurt on the job, the injuries you receive can have a big impact on your future.

Whether you have been temporarily or permanently disabled, our workers’ compensation lawyers are here to help you get the benefits you are entitled to.
Disability benefits are cash payments made to the injured worker as compensation for lost wages or any injuries you may have encountered while on the job. If you have been the victim of a work-related accident resulting in a temporary disability, you can be entitled to two possible types of workers’ compensation benefits:
- Temporary Partial Disability Benefits
- Temporary Total Disability Benefits
Temporary Partial Disability
These types of benefits are for an injured worker who returns to work at a lower pay. These benefits are worth 2/3 of the difference between your pre-injury and post-injury wages. In addition to these partial disability benefits, you may also be entitled to medical compensation which includes, but is not limited to, payment for doctor visits, medications, hospitalizations and surgeries.
Temporary Total Disability
Temporary total disability benefits are for injured workers who are unable to return to any type of employment due to their temporary injury. They are entitled to benefits that are equal to two-thirds of pre-injury wages. Like partial disability benefits, injured workers who receive total disability benefits may also be entitled to medical compensation. Medical compensation includes but is not limited to payment for doctor visits, medications, hospitalizations and surgeries.
Our Cary workers’ compensation attorneys will fight for your temporary disability and get you the compensation you deserve. We work on a contingency basis, meaning if our clients do not get paid, neither do we. We are here to help you in any way we can and are always available to answer any questions you may have about your workers’ compensation claim.
