This is never an easy question to answer as it depends on a variety of items. This typically includes the following:
- Date of Injury: The date of injury controls the law that gets applied. Year by year the law changes which could effect the amount and entitlement to benefits.
- Average Weekly Wage: See how to calculate the AWW.
- Benefit Type: Is it temporary total “TTD”, temporary partial “TPD”, permanent total “PTD” or permanent partial “PPD”?
- Duration of Benefits: The days or weeks of benefits.
With these types of questions it is always important to consult with an attorney. Our office offers a free consultation and would be happy to discuss your entitlement to benefits.
