The Facts About Disability Benefits and Workers’ Compensation Benefits in Florida

Disability benefits are one of the benefits injured employees may qualify for under workers' compensation laws. Disability benefits can provide financial support when you're unable to perform your job duties due to a work-related injury or illness. These benefits help replace a portion of your lost wages.

There are a few types of disability benefits in Florida:

  • Temporary Total Disability (TTD) Benefits: If you temporarily can’t work at all, TTD benefits provide you with a portion of your lost wages while you heal.
  • Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) Benefits: If your injury allows you to work with modified duties with lower pay, TPD benefits help close the gap in earnings.
  • Permanent Total Disability (PTD) Benefits: If you can never return to work because of a workplace injury or illness, you may be able to get financial support for the rest of your life.
  • Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) Benefits: If you’re permanently disabled but can work in some capacity, you may be eligible for PPD support.
  • Settlements: In addition to the above, you may qualify for a lump sum settlement if you lose a body part or the function of a body part.

The calculation of disability benefits depends on your injury, your pre-injury earnings, and how medical professionals classify the degree of disability. It’s important to calculate everything accurately, so you don’t lose out on the compensation you need to pay your bills.

A workers’ compensation attorney can be a strong partner if you’ve suffered a workplace disability. Your lawyer will get accurate valuations of your injuries, will work with medical professionals to get accurate diagnoses, and can negotiate with employers and their insurers to make sure you get the benefits you’re entitled to under the law.
