Types of Temporary Disability Benefits

There are two types of temporary disability benefits:

  • Temporary Total Disability (TTD)
    If your injury is temporary but prohibits you from doing any work, you may be eligible to receive TTD benefits until you’ve recovered and are able to return to your job.
  • Temporary Partial Disability (TPD)
    If your injury is temporary and you’re still able to complete some of the work you did before your accident, you may be eligible to receive TPD benefits until you can take on a full workload again.

At Ponce Law, our Nashville workers’ compensation attorneys stand up for the rights of workers like you who were injured on the job. You deserve money for your workplace injury, and we’ll do our best to help you get it.

Types of Permanent Disability Benefits

Workers’ compensation benefits that provide money to people who suffer permanent disabilities include:

  • Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) Benefits
    Workers who suffer injuries that affect parts of their bodies and aren’t expected to heal may qualify for PPD benefits. This may include conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, nerve damage, or loss of vision in one eye.
  • Permanent Total Disability (PTD) Benefits
    PTD benefits are awarded to workers who suffer disabilities that prevent them from returning to the workforce in any capacity. Conditions that quality for PTD benefits include blindness, paralysis, amputation, and more.

Determining the extent of your injuries and whether your disability is temporary, permanent, partial, or total can be confusing—and your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance may not give you the benefits you deserve. Don’t settle for decreased benefits. Let Ponce Law help.

We do everything with our clients’ best interests in mind, and that includes maximizing their chances of getting their claims approved and getting full compensation for their injuries, their current and future medical bills, and their current and future lost wages.

HEAR IT STRAIGHT FROM OUR CLIENTS

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
