Once injured workers have started receiving medical treatment for their injuries, it is normal for them to start to wonder how they will be supporting themselves and their families financially until they can go back to the job.
Thoughts about when a first workers comp check may arrive, who has to pay for all the medical treatment must often be addressed.One also wonders when doing these checks get cut off and these will be discussed in the article.
Temporary total disability benefits are 2/3 of one’s average weekly wage just before the injury, up to an annual adjusted legal maximum.
3. Limited Restrictions
Your doctor sends you back to work with some limitations (such as not lifting heavy items or using a keyboard for a limited period).
If you receive less than you previously while employed under these restrictions, these benefits would be 80 percent of the difference between your current earnings and 80 percent of your pre-injury wages.
Suppose, for instance, you used to earn $1,000 a week but now earn $600. You would subtract $600 from 80% of $1,000 (or $800), to get $200. You would then receive 80% off $200, or $160 per week.
