Question:

If I am unable to go back to work or make as much as I did prior to the injury, am I entitled to wage replacement?

Answer:

Wage ReplacementClients call and ask our workers’ comp attorney, Daniel Garza, that question all the time. Generally, he’s going to advise you that in that situation, you can qualify for temporary partial disability depending again on the stage of your case. If you want to know how that applies to your case in particular, that’s perfectly why you need to call and talk to our Daniel Garza, our workers’ compensation attorney. He’ll advise you how that applies to your specific case.

A very common situation is you’ve seen the company doctor. The company doctor, after a little bit of treatment, says, okay, I’m going to release you to go back with light duty. You go back on light duty and either there’s not as much available for you or you’re not paid the same and so your earnings are reduced. That’s a very common situation. If that’s what’s happening, call us. Talk to Daniel Garza. He’ll be happy to share his 20 years’ experience with you.

If your medical care isn’t really what you need, we can refer you to private doctors who don’t work principally for insurance companies and don’t work principally for employers. There’s not a lot of those doctors out there. They’re going to look out for your own interests first. That can result in you getting higher benefits and more long-term rewards. Remember, the call to us is free; the information is free. The person who’s going to benefit the most by making the call the earliest is always you.
