Hurt on the Job? Contact Our Firm to Explore Temporary Disability Options

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 you may be able to collect compensation from federally funded programs such as Social Security.

Such injuries include:

  • Amputation
  • Paralysis
  • 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.
