Columbia Temporary Disability Attorney
There are many cases when individuals are so severely injured that they
incur a short-term or even long-term disability. If you have been injured
in an accident at work, then you need to
file a workers' compensation claim to pursue money damages for your injuries. If you have incurred a disability
such as one of the following, you may be able to collect compensation
from federally funded programs such as Social Security:
- Other severe injury
If you qualify and you are declared temporarily disabled, then you may
receive one check that will cover all benefits to which you are entitled.
If you are out of work for a longer period of time, then you may receive
weekly checks to cover two-thirds of your usual salary.
If you believe that you have been temporarily disabled through an accident
at work, then it is important for you to seek legal representation from
our Columbia personal injury attorney at the Law Office of James R. Snell,
Jr., LLC to discuss your options and to begin pursuing the damages and
compensation that you need in your situation. Receiving disability benefits
will end when you return to work; however, if you are only able to return
to work part time, or at a job that pays less than your original salary,
then you may be able to receive two-thirds of the difference in compensation
for a temporary time.
