Colorado Springs Lost Income Benefits Lawyer
Income benefits can help restore a percentage of the income that you lose as a result of an occupational related illness or injury. At Weddell & Haller, in Colorado Springs and Southern Colorado, we understand that an injury or illness can drastically interfere with your ability to maintain a stable income, and if this happens to you due to your work injury, you are entitled to compensation.
At Weddell & Haller we have a veteran team of attorneys with extensive knowledge in worker’s compensation claims. We can help you with discerning the appropriate income benefits for your particular and unique situation.
Income benefits fall under two distinct categories:
Temporary income benefits: There are two types of temporary income benefits. The first is temporary total disability which pays two-thirds of your average weekly wage when your work-related injury prohibits you from performing the duties of your job while receiving medical treatment. The second is temporary partial disability which provides for a portion of your normal income if you are able to return to your job on a part-time basis.
- Lifetime income benefits: Permanent total disability pays two-thirds of your average weekly wage for the remainder of your life if your work injury prevents you from performing your job or any other employment.
