Since 1997, Lanier Law Group has helped victims of workplace accidents and injuries obtain the workers' compensation benefits they deserved. If your injury is so severe that you can’t work, you certainly can’t afford to have your claim denied. Our lawyers know the benefits you may be entitled to, and we are prepared to fight to help you receive them.
Lost Wages: How Much Are You Entitled to Receive?
When you are seeking workers' compensation, you may be able to recover a percentage of your lost wages in addition to your medical expenses. The amount of lost wages you can recover is based primarily on the severity of your injuries.
At Lanier Law Group, our attorneys frequently help clients with the following conditions:
- Temporary total disability: A temporary total disability (TTD) is a condition that causes you to be totally disabled for a limited time. In North Carolina, you can receive up to 66 percent of your average weekly wage until you return to work or until your medical condition improves to the point where you could work again.
- Temporary partial disability: People who have been injured but still can work have a temporary partial disability (TPD). Those with a TPD may collect as much as 66 percent of the difference between their average weekly wage before the disability and their average weekly wage after the disability.
- Permanent total disability: If you become permanently and totally disabled (PTD) as a result of a work-related injury or illness, you can receive up to 66 percent of your average weekly wage for the rest of your life.
After being injured on the job, the last thing you need to worry about are the confusing workers’ compensation laws and procedures. Our goal is to help you quickly obtain workers' compensation benefits so you can begin rebuilding your life and moving forward.
