Permanent partial disability (PPD) benefits are wage loss and medical benefits that are paid if you are not totally disabled or you can return to work in a modified-duty or lower-paying capacity. If you can work but are earning less money than you were before the injury, your wage loss benefits will be based on a percentage of the difference between your previous and current wages. The benefit calculations are done according to a statutory formula.
Permanent partial disability benefits may last up to 500 weeks from the date of your injury or diagnosis. If, at the end of this 500-week period, you have not had your status modified upward to temporary total disability, your wage loss benefits will cease.
By contrast, temporary total disability (TTD) benefits can last indefinitely and begin one week from the date you were last able to work. Temporary total disability benefits are also based on a percentage of your average weekly wage up to a specified maximum amount. During this time, your status can be changed to permanent partial disability if following an impairment rating evaluation (IRE) where a physician determines you have reached maximum medical improvement (MMI). This IRE is only able to be conducted after receipt of 104 weeks of disability benefits. The IRE determination assumes that you have reached maximum medical improvement. If the impairment rating you receive is too low, or if you believe that you have not reached maximum medical improvement, our attorneys can challenge it.
