More Than 20 Years Of Experience Standing Up For Minnesota Workers

Attorney Assistance For Temporary Partial Disability Benefits Through Workers’ Compensation

At The Law Office of Gretchen Hall, attorney Gretchen Hall has more than 20 years of experience helping St. Paul workers who have suffered temporary partial disabilities due to on-the-job injuries or work-related illnesses here in Minnesota.

The Definition Of A Temporary Partial Disability

A temporary partial disability is one where you are not entirely unable to work – but you cannot yet return to your full job duties.

In some workers’ compensation claims, you may be able to handle a modified version of your usual job, while other situations may require you to only do “light duty” work that is vastly different from your regular work. This could occur at any stage of your recovery process from a workplace accident or illness.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits Available In The Event Of A Temporary Partial Disability

Subdivision 2 of Minnesota Statutes Section 176.101 establishes the rules for temporary partial disability compensation. In general, you are eligible to receive 66-⅔ % of the difference between whatever you made before the accident or illness and what you make after (up to a specified maximum).

These cash benefits are payable for 250 weeks or until 450 weeks have passed since your workers’ comp claim began. During that time, you remain entitled to all the necessary medical care you should receive for your work-related condition. You may also be entitled to reimbursement for travel to obtain your medical treatment and vocational rehabilitation services.
