Lost Time Benefits Workers' Compensation Work With a Team With a History of Excellence

Lost-Time Workers' Compensation Benefits in Illinois

The workers’ compensation lawyers at Anesi Ozmon in Chicago are dedicated to protecting the rights of individuals who suffer injuries on the job.

When a worker is disabled and cannot return to their job after an on-the-job injury, they are entitled to receive weekly benefits under the Workers’ Compensation Act. These benefits are referred to as Temporary Total Disability (TTD) benefits. TTD benefits are paid at the rate of 2/3 of the employee’s weekly wage averaged from the year before the accident.

These benefits have minimum and maximum amounts set by the state of Illinois. The act precludes the inclusion of overtime when calculating the average weekly wage. Under special circumstances, however, overtime may be included. The lawyers at Anesi Ozmon know how to get overtime hours included.

There are different methods used to compute an injured employee’s average weekly wage. Having an experienced workers’ compensation attorney protecting your rights can increase the amount paid in TTD benefits by hundreds of dollars a week. Workers who reside in states such as Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, or Kentucky but maintain contact with an Illinois company, or are hurt in the state of Illinois, may be entitled to Illinois Workers’ Compensation benefits.

No benefits are paid for the first three days lost from work, unless the lost time continues for 14 days or more after the date of injury. Written notice of the employer’s denial of benefits must be sent within 14 days of the injury. If temporary total disability benefits are not paid within 14 days, and the employer cannot justify the delay in payment, the employer may be subject to penalties under the Workers’ Compensation Act.
