Workers' Compensation

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident while on the job, it's important to contact an experienced North Carolina workers' compensation attorney to figure out your next steps.

What does it mean to receive temporary total disability benefits?

wfaq4If your injury prevents you from working – but only for what is expected to be a short period of time – you may be entitled to receive temporary total disability benefits.

You should be eligible to start receiving these benefits after a seven-day waiting period. Temporary total disability (TTD) benefits usually come in a weekly check and represent two-thirds of your average weekly wage. Your average weekly wage is the average wage you earned over the 52 weeks prior to your injury.

Ultimately, a doctor will determine when you are able to return to work. If you disagree with the doctor’s conclusion, it may be time to get a second opinion and / or to consult with an attorney.
