Pursuing Compensation For Your Lost Income
Most injured workers can expect their wage loss benefits to cover approximately two-thirds of their weekly wages prior to their injury. This is not the same for everyone, however. For example, a part-time worker who is 75 years old may receive 90 percent of his or her wages rather than two-thirds.
Determining the amount of wage loss benefits an injured worker is eligible for can also be complicated by other benefits he or she is receiving such as Social Security Disability benefits.
Permanent Partial Disability (PPD)
Employees who are not totally disabled or able to return to work at a lower-paying job are eligible for these benefits, which are calculated based on their average weekly wage. The benefits will stop after a maximum of 500 weeks unless their status is shifted to TTD.
