Legal Help for Injured Workers Who Are Unable to Return to Work
If you have been involved in any sort of serious work accident, there will probably be least a few days — or maybe a much longer time period — when you are medically unable to do any kind of work without interfering with your recovery from your injuries.
Under workers' compensation law, this period of time is known as total disability. At the Law Offices of Ralph A. Russo, just outside Hartford, Connecticut, we are highly experienced at helping clients get the total disability benefits they deserve. Don't hesitate to contact us for a free consultation.
Making Sure Your Financial Needs Are Met While You Recover
Many people these days live virtually paycheck to paycheck and do not have enough savings to cover their regular monthly expenses while they are unable to work. Even if you have adequate savings, you may be concerned about mounting medical bills due to your accident.
While you are in a state of temporary total disability (TTD) caused by a work accident, you are legally entitled to employer-paid medical treatment and a benefit for your lost wages.
We will do everything we can to make sure you are getting the total disability benefits you deserve as quickly as possible. You should not have to worry about financial pressures while you are trying to recover from your injuries. A knowledgeable workers' comp lawyer can help.
Understanding the Difference Between Total and Partial Disability
If your doctor says that — while you are unable to return to your regular job — there are types of work you are medically capable of performing during you recovery period, you will then be considered temporarily partially disabled instead of totally disabled.
Attorney Ralph A. Russo, a Board Certified Workers' Compensation Specialist by the Connecticut Bar Association, has the experience to guide you through all the steps of the workers' comp process.
