What if I can still work or had to take a job making less money due to an injury?
You may still have a claim for partial disability benefits under the Workers’ Compensation Act.
Partial disability benefits are 2/3 of the difference in your average weekly wage before the accident and after the accident. Therefore, if you are injured and unable to make as much as you did before the accident you may be entitled to 2/3 the difference for a certain period of time. Partial disability benefits and the time you are allowed these benefits can be difficult to calculate; therefore, we recommend speaking with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney if you think you may qualify to receive these benefits.
