Temporary total disability compensation (TTD) and permanent total disability (PTD) compensation are designed to support you if you are unable to resume your professional duties after a workplace injury. These crucial benefits provide you with the compensation you need to sustain your standard of living after a job-related accident.
The law firm of Weisser & Wolf has provided zealous representation to injured Ohio workers since 1988. With more than a combined 70 years of experience and two Ohio Bar certified specialists in workers compensation on our exceptional team, we obtain the compensation you deserve for your disabilities.
If your workplace injury temporarily prevents you from working, you are entitled to recover temporary total compensation. These TTD payments are intended as a short-term initial award that compensates you for lost wages while you are unable to perform your regular employment duties.
The Bureau of Workers Compensation or your employer may attempt to terminate your benefits before you reach maximum medical improvement (MMI). If your doctor disputes their assessment, we can challenge their claim at a hearing and demand your continued compensation until you can fully return to work.
When a permanent total disability (PTD) sustained during a workplace accident or hazardous employment condition precludes you from working, you are eligible for PTD payments for life. Because PTD benefits permanently compensate disabled workers for impaired earning capacity, you are subjected to a rigorous screening process to qualify. You must undergo an Industrial Commission examination and attend a hearing to determine whether you meet the strict eligibility criteria.
