Tennessee Temporary Partial Disability Benefits
If you are unable to do your job due to a work-related injury or illness, then you are eligible for temporary partial disability benefits. Tennessee workers’ compensation provides disability payments equal to 66 and 2/3 percent of your wages at the time of the injury, subject to certain limits. If you are able to work part time, this benefit will be reduced by any wages you are able to earn.
Tennessee Permanent Disability Benefits
If your work-related injury or illness results in a permanent reduction in your ability to do any work for which you are suited by education, age and training, then you may be eligible for permanent disability benefits.
The amount of your weekly benefit is based on the degree to which your disability prevents you from working. An experienced Nashville disability attorney can help you obtain the maximum benefit to which you are entitled.
