Pursuing Temporary Total Disability (TTD) And Permanent Total Disability (PTD) Benefits
While medical benefits are consistent in the workers’ compensation system, wage benefits vary depending on the nature and the extent of your work injury. Two of the most common wage benefits are temporary total disability (TTD) and permanent total disability (PTD).
At the Philip J. Fulton Law Office, our knowledge of workers’ comp law allows us to quickly lock onto the benefits you are eligible for and take action to maximize TTD and PTD benefits so your needs are met. With more than 35 years of experience on our side, you can be confident in the results we provide.
What Is Temporary Total Disability?
This may be the most important and most commonly used benefit in the workers’ compensation system. This is available to people who are temporarily unable to go back to work. Benefits continue until the work injury victim reaches the point of maximum medical improvement and can return to work, as determined by a doctor.
What Is Permanent Total Disability?
This benefit is available to the most seriously injured people. This is for workplace accident victims who cannot return to their previous job because the permanent nature of their injury prevents them from doing so. Furthermore, the person’s age, education, work history and other factors make it impossible for the person to get back into the workforce at all. Permanent total disability benefits are provided for the remainder of the person’s life.
