Types of Workers' Compensation Disability Benefits

Becoming hurt at work entitles you to certain benefits under the law. Mainly, your medical bills and a certain percent of lost wages will be paid to you if your claim is accepted. At Kirshenbaum & Kirshenbaum, our Cranston attorneys have been helping people recover benefits since 1933, and we know how to help you as well.

The Main Categories of Disability Benefits in Workers' Compensation

The types of disability benefits under the Rhode Island work comp system include:

  • Permanent total disability: Permanent total disability (PTD) covers situations in which you are severely hurt on the job and can never return to work again.
  • Permanent partial disability: Permanent partial disability (PPD) involves an injury that prevents you from ever returning to work at your full capacity, but you are able to recover enough to work again.
  • Temporary total disability: Temporary total disability (TTD) kicks in when you are hurt at work but are expected to return at some point.

You can rely on our firm to help you through any type of injury you have suffered at work.
