Temporary Total Payments

Lexington Workers' Compensation Lawyer

When someone is forced to sit out from work after an accident it can be a trying and stressful occurrence. Although you can't do the things you normally due your bills continue to come in. On top of everything else you now have to worry about how to make your car payment, house payment and buy groceries.

One of the key benefits available to someone who has been injured at work in South Carolina is designed to assist with these issues. If you are not able to work due to an accident you may be eligible for temporary total disability payments. These benefits are calculated as a percentage of your normal wages. They are payable to you directly by your employer's insurance company. Although the payments are called temporary total disability, they are designed to last only during the time period that your Workers' Compensation claim is pending and you are out of work. They are not a substitute for long term or permanent disability - and receipt of these payments does not interfere with your ability or right to later return to work when you are able.
