After a workplace accident that leaves you unable to return to the job, the loss of normal wages can make it difficult to pay for average expenses. Temporary disability benefits are designed to help replace lost wages that happen as the result of a workplace injury. These benefits are for a maximum of two-thirds of the lost wages up to a certain limit. If you have lost wages due to an injury at work, email us or call (650) 345-8484 to get more information.

Temporary disability benefits can be paid both to people who are unable to work due to workplace injuries. Those who have returned to work, but are restricted and cannot work full time may be entitled to wage loss benefits. Temporary benefits, wage loss and permanent disability benefits, are both based on the average weekly wage of the worker.
Unfortunately, insurance carriers may value wages low or overlook factors such as commissions and overtime. It is important to ensure that all of these factors are taken into account and that your rights are protected by an experienced attorney.
