ALTON, IL TEMPORARY TOTAL DISABILITY LAWYER
Advocating to Help Injured Workers Obtain Lost Wages
If a job-related accident has prevented you from returning to work, seek legal help from an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. You are entitled to obtain lost wages in the form of temporary total disability (TTD) benefits.
Insurance companies are known to deny workers’ compensation benefits, claiming the injury was a pre-existing condition, misdiagnosed or not work-related. For than 25 years, I have helped employers throughout Illinois to obtain full and fair compensation for work-related injuries. I am prepared to help you secure the compensation needed to cover your lost wages.

What Do Temporary Total Disability Benefits Cover?
Temporary total disability benefits are tax free and cover two thirds of injured workers’ average weekly wage. This is calculated by determining the amount of wages you earned 52 weeks before the accident occurred.
Any overtime you worked in the past 52 weeks can be included in the calculation, as long as the overtime was regular and mandatory. Unfortunately, your employer is not required to pay temporary total disability benefits for the first three days of your injury, unless your injury has prevented you from working for 14 days or more.
Pursuing Fair Compensation For Injured Workers
You are entitled to workers’ comp insurance benefits if your doctor ordered you to stop working and you are getting medical treatment for your injuries. Similarly, you qualify for workers’ compensation benefits if your employer has failed to make appropriate work accommodations based on your doctor’s recommendations.
Unfortunately, employers are known to delay payments or make calculation errors. I am a skilled workers’ compensation attorney with more than 25 years of experience. I am prepared to help you obtain full and fair compensation for your lost wages, medical needs and other expenses. I will not let insurance companies overlook any mistakes or reject any legitimate claims.
