Temporary Disability Benefits

When you suffer an injury at the workplace you may require many days or months to recover, and the time away from work can result in a significant financial strain. Workers’ compensation is designed to help offset the costs of workplace injuries, and you may be eligible to receive temporary disability benefits that will help cover your costs.

Unfortunately, obtaining the benefits you are entitled to may not be a straightforward process, and often requires the assistance of a skilled attorney. Call the qualified Des Moines workers’ compensation attorneys of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. today at (515) 705-0233 to learn more about how legal representation can increase your chances of gaining access to your benefits.

Types of Temporary Disability Benefits

Most injuries will not result in a permanent disability but may limit or eliminate your ability to perform your job duties while the injury is being treated. Benefits for such injuries fall into the following categories:

  • Temporary Total Disability (TTD): Offered to claimants who are completely off work for three days or more due to injury.
  • Temporary Partial Disability (TPD): If you are able to return to work at a lesser paying job due to limitations from your injury, you are eligible for these benefits.
  • Healing Period (HP): In practice, these are the same as TTD benefits, but begin on the first calendar day after your injury.

Workers’ compensation benefits can be an essential part of your recovery, and it is imperative that you take decisive steps to ensure you receive the benefits you need.
