Compensation For Your Lost Wages

What Happens To Your Wages While You Recover?

Once treatment for your physical injuries are covered by workers' compensation medical benefits, the most crucial aspect of the workers' compensation process is making sure you are compensated for the wage losses you suffer when you are unable to work. Wage loss benefits continue as long as you are unable to work as a result of your work-related injury.

At Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo, we understand how intimidating the workers' compensation process can be and go to great lengths to pursue the rights of injured workers in Bethlehem, Whitehall and surrounding areas of Pennsylvania.

Recouping Lost Income

Employers and their workers' compensation insurance carriers will often leave out important information or provide misleading information when dealing with injured workers. That is why it is so important to have a knowledgeable workers' compensation lawyer on your side to make sure you understand the wage loss benefits you are entitled to receive.

For workers who cannot work at all due to their injuries, they will receive temporary total disability (TTD) wage loss benefits, which total a portion of their average weekly wages. To learn more about how these benefits are calculated, we encourage you to contact us. We can review your benefits to ensure they have been properly calculated.

If you can perform some jobs, but have still not fully recovered from your work-related injury, you may qualify for partial disability benefits. If the job you are able to perform pays less than your previous job, you can receive benefits that equal two-thirds of that difference. We will make sure that you truly fit this definition and counsel you on the best way to approach your employment situation if you are partially disabled.
