Negotiating A Disability Settlement

There are various levels of pay benefits available, depending upon the severity of the injury. For temporary disabilities that keep you off the job or in a reduced earning capacity, you will be entitled to receive two-thirds of your average weekly earnings calculated against the previous 13 weeks of employment. In many cases employees are entitled to temporary total disability (TTD) benefits and permanent partial disability benefits. (PPD) Often, serious injuries qualify for catastrophic designation which can mean the injured worker may be entitled to lifetime income and medical benefits.
