Working With You To Maximize Your Temporary Disability/Wage Benefits
Although workplace injuries are common, not all injuries are severe enough to prevent you from immediately returning to work. However, this is not the case for a majority of workplace incidents that happen in warehouses, factories and construction sites.
When you have been hurt on the job and have suffered serious injuries that prohibit you from returning to work, you may be entitled to temporary disability benefits.
Hurt At Work? You May Be Entitled to Benefits
For more than three decades, Paul M. Erspamer, founder of Paul M. Erspamer Law Offices, S.C., has been assisting injured employees pursue lost wages claims in order to receive:
- Temporary partial disability (TPD) benefits: If your doctor allows you to work limited hours while you are treating your injury, you are entitled to partial wage benefits from your employer’s insurance.
- Temporary total disability (TTD) benefits: You are entitled to full wage benefits from your employer’s insurance if your workplace injury has left you unable to work.
In Wisconsin, these tax-free benefits are determined by calculating two-thirds of your gross average weekly wage that you received before your injury. If you work overtime, your extra working hours should be calculated into your benefits. The majority of part-time workers are also able to obtain disability benefits. Our lawyer will meet with you to discuss your injuries, address your lost wages issues and determine the type of benefits you should receive.
We will help you with your workers’ compensation claim, working with your employer’s insurance company and advocating your rights in order to receive the proper benefits.
If your temporary disability benefits have been denied by your employer’s insurance company or your insurance company as a self-insured employee, we will tenaciously work to achieve those benefits that you rightfully deserve. We will not hesitate to bring your case to court.
