At some point, many injured workers return to work while their case is still open. Georgia Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) Benefits compensate you for a difference in wages. When you are earning less than you did before your injury, TPD calculations can often be complicated, it is important to have an experienced attorney help you calculate what is owed.
The benefits are calculated by subtracting your gross income of your current job from the gross income of your previous job. The TPD benefit will equal 2/3 of the difference in wages and you can continue to receive the benefit for a maximum of 350 weeks.
It is very important to hire ReisLaw for help through the return to work transition and make sure you are paid the TPD benefits owed. These benefits can easily amount to thousands of dollars every month. Call 404.876.4200 today for a FREE consultation to fully understand your rights in this situation.
