Temporary Partial Disability
North Carolina Temporary Partial Disability Lawyer
Unfortunately, workers’ compensation insurance companies may try to deny benefits and compensation to injured employees who need the financial assistance to survive. We have seen the insurers do this time and again.
At the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin, we know how to help if you are having problems obtaining your workers’ compensation benefits. We take an aggressive stand against insurers who may come up with excuses not to provide the compensation and benefits you may be entitled.
A Closer Look at Temporary Partial Disability Benefits
One of the benefits you might receive is called temporary partial disability (TPD). This is a form of workers’ compensation benefits that employees may be entitled to receive after they have returned to work, but are earning less than they were prior to the injury.
In such a case, employees may be entitled to compensation equal to two-thirds (2/3) of the difference between their post- and pre-injury weekly wages, so long as the amount does not exceed the maximum weekly benefit set by the North Carolina Industrial Commission. A worker who is receiving temporary partial disability (TPD) should consult with a workers’ compensation lawyer to ensure that their right to an appropriate job is protected.
