Work is an essential part of a person’s life, allowing them to earn an income and provide for their family. When someone is injured at work, they have the right to receive workers’ compensation to pay for their medical bills and provide for their needs when they are unable to earn an income during their recovery. If an employee’s inability to work is expected to only last for a short time, they may be eligible for either temporary partial disability (TPD) or temporary total disability (TTD), and it is important to understand what is provided in these forms of compensation.
