Missouri Temporary Wage Compensation Attorney
Most people live paycheck to paycheck, and cannot afford to be out of work. If you have been injured on the job and are waiting for workers compensation benefits, you may be asked to do just that. An experienced lawyer can help you get your regular paycheck replaced by a temporary one, paid by your insurance company. At the Law Office of James M. Hoffmann, we will help you submit a timely request for temporary wage compensation, holding you over until your work comp case is resolved.
There is often a required waiting period before you can obtain temporary wage compensation, so you want to get your request submitted as quickly as possible. Once you are approved, you will start receiving your temporary wages on a weekly or biweekly basis.
Payment for Lost Wages
You may be eligible for a weekly check until the doctor says you are able to return to any form of work and not merely the job you were doing at the time of the accident. You may also be eligible for benefits if you return to work on light duty at less than full pay. There is a 3 day waiting period to receive these benefits but this waiting period is paid if you end up being off work for more than 14 days. The amount of these checks is normally 66 2/3 percent of your average weekly wage not to exceed a maximum set by state law depending on the date of your accident.
