If I Am Unable To Return To The Type Of Work I Did Before I Was Injured, What Happens?

Temporary partial benefits are paid to an injured employee if they return to work and due to their disability are unable to earn the equivalent amount they were earning prior to their disability. The employee, or occasionally the employer, will submit the pay stubs to the adjuster so that the temporary partial benefit of 60% of the difference between prior injury earnings and post­injury earnings can be determined.
