Understanding Your Rights to Temporary Partial Disability Benefits

A disability caused by a work-related injury can be considered temporary and total or temporary and partial. Temporary means that the disability is not expected to be a lifelong disability, while partial means that the disability is only affecting a portion of a body part or limb. Our Schuylkill County injury attorney can ensure you are receiving the proper benefits you are entitled to.

Workers' compensation pays benefits to injured workers in order to make up for the wages they lose out on due to their injury. If an injured worker is able to return to work and earn some income, temporary partial disability benefits may be paid. The amount of temporary partial disability that is paid is typically a percentage of the difference between the worker's income before the injury and the wages earned after the injury.

These benefits are intended to cover:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical expenses
  • Related expenses

Eligibility for Returning to Work After Injury

In some cases, it may be possible for you to return to work with a temporary partial disability. However, you may be unable to return to the same job or work in the same capacity due to the injury. This can mean that you are earning less than you were before your injury.

Temporary total disability benefits are designed to provide you with supplemental income in the event that this situation arises. Employers may also be required to provide you with accommodations to ensure that you are able to be as successful as possible in any job position to which you return.
