Workers' Comp Lost Wages and Income Benefits

Does Workers' Compensation Cover Lost Wages?

If you have been injured while on the job and cannot work due to your injuries you are entitled to receive compensation to reimburse you for the wages you are unable to earn while off work. You may qualify for either Temporary Total Disability (TTD) or Temporary Partial Disability (TPD).

There are several different types of coverage and to better understand them and get help filing for such compensation you should call and speak to a Loveland workers' comp attorney at Busch Law Offices. We are a family run business and have been helping Larimer County residents with their legal problems and workers' comp claims for over 30 years.

When you contact our firm we can provide a free consultation to answer all your questions and explain what your workers' comp benefits may cover. If your injuries have made you unable to return to work after a few days, you are eligible to receive a certain percentage of your normal weekly wage. If your injuries do allow you to return to work but at a reduced capacity you can also receive payment to compensate for any wage reduction.

What Kind of Lost Income Compensation Can I Receive?

The two primary types of wage loss or reduced income compensation are as follows:

  • Temporary Total Disability (TTD): If you are unable to return to work due to your injuries you can receive a benefit that is equal to two-thirds of your average weekly pay.
  • Temporary Partial Disability (TPD): If you do return to work but your abilities are limited by your injuries you can receive compensation to make up for a reduced wage.

Both of these plans will require supplying the workers' comp insurance company and your employer with the necessary medical records and treatment documentation to qualify for such benefits. We can help you obtain and correctly file these documents along with helping you get the best medical care and rehabilitative services that are available. We understand how the insurance company may challenge or wish to review such claims and we know the steps necessary to help you receive the compensation you deserve.

Contact a Loveland Workers' Comp Lawyer for more information about whether or not workers' compensation will cover your lost wages. We offer help in getting total or partial disability wage compensation benefits from your workers' comp policy.
