How To Get Workers' Comp For A Temporary Disability

Workers' Compensation Attorney In Fresno With Years Of Experience

Temporary disabilities are the benefits given to injured workers who are unable to perform their duties because they are recovering from a work-related injury. Some of the common types of temporary disabilities are spinal cord injuries and back injuries. You might be entitled to workers' compensation benefits up until the point when you return to work or until your condition has reached complete recovery. It is advisable to obtain the legal counsel of our the Law Offices of Bryan K. Leiser.

Ask an attorney about your case.

What To Do Next

In order to obtain benefits for temporary disabilities, you will need to present valid medical documentation of the current status of your disability. Claims for temporary or permanent impairment may be difficult to file. Your claim may even be denied without proper representation.

After being absent from work for four days as the result of a temporary disability, you may be eligible to begin receiving benefits. The amount to which you will be compensated will be at a rate of two-thirds of your usual wages. California law now places a cap of two years on the benefits that you can receive for temporary disability.
