Temporary Total Disability

At The Davis Law Group, P.C., our attorneys will fight to ensure you receive the temporary total disability (“TTD”) benefits you deserve after an injury on the job. You are entitled to receive these benefits if you are temporarily unable to return to work. TTD benefits are also available for those who are able to return to work on light-duty but whose employer is unable to make an accommodation. TTD benefits are 66 2/3% of your average weekly wage, subject to set minimum and maximum amounts. Generally, your average weekly wage is based on your gross pay for the 52 weeks prior to the date of injury. However, the average weekly wage computation becomes more complicated if you were working two jobs at the time of your injury. If your employer knew you were working at another job prior to your injury, your average weekly wage may be based on your combined income. Overtime is not generally included in the computation.

Your TTD benefits should be paid until you return to work or your condition is no longer improving. Generally, TTD benefits will not be paid for the first three workdays missed. However, the first three workdays missed will be paid for if you miss 14 or more days due to your injury.

If injured, you should give your employer notice of your injury by way of a doctor’s notice and a demand for TTD benefits. Your employer is required to pay your TTD benefits within 14 days of receiving notice of your injury, and any denial of benefits must be within 14 days as well. If your employer does not pay your TTD benefits in a timely manner, you may petition for your employer to pay penalties and attorneys’ fees. If your employer stops paying your TTD benefits, it must give you a written explanation. If it does not provide this written explanation, you may again petition for penalties and/or attorneys’ fees. Contact The Davis Law Group, P.C. for assistance with your workers’ compensation claim.

I want to extend my sincere gratitude for the success in getting my charges reduced. It has been a rather traumatic experience for me. Though I try to keep an optimistic outlook, it didn't seem possible. But you guys pulled it off and I couldn't be more grateful. This has been a great weight lifted off my shoulders. D.F.

I would like to take this time to thank you for a job well done. I received my full reinstatement documents today for full driving privileges. This took me by surprise. I did not expect to see the results this fast. I just want to say that I am blessed to have a very good lawyer like yourself to guide me through the process... I am very grateful. You're the best. Thanks again. G.B.

I am very grateful for your work and representation. Although it is difficult for me to truly express my gratitude through e-mail, I hope you can still understand how thankful I am that we were able to dismiss my case on the first court date. I am very pleased with the outcome. Again, thank you very much for your time. Please enjoy the rest of your week. D.K.
