Types Of Workers’ Compensation Settlement
The type of workers’ compensation settlement you will receive will depend upon the extent and permanency of your injuries. For example, a worker who is permanently disabled will receive benefits different from a worker who is temporarily disabled. Or, if a family member has died from an illness or injury at work, they will receive death benefits.
Talk with our team today about the following types of settlements:
- Temporary total (TT): This is compensation for total disability on a temporary or short-term basis.
- Scheduled loss (SL): This is compensation for residual damages. In the past, this was known as permanent partial disability, and it includes amputations, loss of use, loss of vision and loss of hearing.
- Permanent total disability (PTD): This is compensation for loss of earning capacity and payable for life.
- Death claims: This is compensation for family members, based on the level of dependency or support each dependent had on the worker.
Workers’ compensation settlements can be paid in various ways, including in a lump-sum settlement or lump-sum advancement.
