There are two types of partial disability benefits: temporary and permanent. Temporary partial disability is available to an individual working at a wage loss due to work restrictions or limited hours. Temporary partial disability benefits are calculated as two-thirds of the difference between your Average Weekly Wage and your actual reduced earnings.
Permanent partial disability benefits are paid out when you have suffered a permanent partial disability, such as the loss of a body part or limb, that does not cause total disability. The amount that you will be paid is based upon the disability schedule. To find out what permanent partial disability benefits you could collect, contact our office today.
If you hope to get your claim for partial disability benefits approved, you will need to make sure that you qualify. Your employer may be required under Minnesota law to provide you with workers’ compensation insurance protection. If you were injured at work due to your work environment, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.
Your physician will review your medical records in detail to determine whether you have suffered a temporary or permanent partial disability. These medical records will go a long way in helping support your claim for workers’ compensation benefits in Minneapolis.
By filing a workers’ compensation claim, you can recover temporary partial or total disability benefits until you are able to return to work. If you develop a long-term impairment due to the workplace injury, you could receive permanent disability benefits later on.
When your temporary disability benefits end, you can begin to receive permanent partial disability benefits. This process usually begins when you reach maximum medical improvement (MMI), or a point where your condition improves as much as it could.
The state pays permanent partial disability if you suffer the permanent functional loss of use of the body, such as an amputation. You will need to receive an evaluation by a qualified medical professional to determine if you are eligible for these benefits. Your physician will also provide you with a percentage of disability, which will factor into the amount of compensation that you receive.
You should not have to wait to get your claim for partial disability benefits approved. But the insurance company is not always willing to approve the claims of even the most deserving of claimants.
