Identifying the Types of Worker's Compensation Benefits

If you sustained an injury at work, you are likely overwhelmed wondering how your daily expenses will be covered - especially if your medical condition has restricted your ability to continue working. We understand this is likely an emotional time for you. The last thing you need is to be left with any surprises. Our law firm's Miami worker's comp benefits lawyers are available to explain the type of benefits available to injured workers, such as:

  • Average weekly wage - You are entitled to receive an average weekly wage based on your reported earnings and fringe benefits for the 13 weeks before your work-related accident occurred. Any wages you earned from a second job can also be used to calculate your average weekly wage.
  • Temporary total disability (TTD) benefits - You are entitled to TTD benefits if your worker's compensation doctor determines that you can no longer work because of the injuries you sustained. These benefits would be paid out for 104 weeks in combination with temporary partial disability benefits or until the worker's compensation doctor determines you have reached a maximum level of improvement.
  • Temporary partial disability benefits (TPD) - If you are able to return to work on a modified basis, or light/sedentary duty, you are entitled to TPD benefits. The amount of benefits will be based on how much you can earn on a modified basis. These benefits are payable for 104 weeks in combination with TTD benefits or until the worker's compensation doctor determines you have reached a maximum level of improvement.
  • Permanent impairment benefits - Once your worker's compensation doctor determines that you have reached a maximum level of improvement, your temporary benefits will end. In order to continue receiving benefits, the physician must determine you have a permanent impairment rating. These benefits would be paid bi-weekly at 75 percent of the wages you earned if you are still not working.
  • Permanent today disability benefits (PTD) - To qualify for PTD benefits, your doctors must determine that you are unable to engage in sedentary employment within 50 miles of your home based on your physical limitations.
  • Death benefits - If your loved one died in a work-related accident, you are entitled to receive death benefits. This would include funeral expenses, two-thirds of the deceased employee's average weekly wage and schooling expenses for the surviving spouse.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating. Daniel
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none. Marcos G.
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands. Nora N.
Caroyln's expertise and compassion got me through a very trying period of my life. She is an excellent lawyer and human being. 5 Star all the way! Lois H.
I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida. Mike P.
