Handling Temporary Partial Disability Claims in New York

If you are considered to have a temporary partial disability, you are expected to fully recover. However, until you do, you may not be able to perform your job or another job demanding similar motor vehicle skills. For example, if you broke your leg, you may not be able to work at a construction site or in a similar setting expecting you to be on your feet. While recuperating from the work-related illness or injuries, you may be able to work in a part-time capacity in another line of work.

Since light-duty or part-time work may not pay as much as you are accustomed to, temporary partial disability benefits can help you make up the difference until you can return to you line of work. Temporary partial disability benefits will pay two-thirds of the difference in pay for several months. Our workers' compensation attorneys have extensive experience representing injured workers facing similar financial concerns. We are committed to helping you navigate through the legal system so you can secure the full amount of compensation you are entitled.
