Partial Disability Benefits

Section 35/Partial Disability

Employees who are able to work, but cannot perform their full duties and cannot earn their previous wages are considered partially disabled. Currently, partial disability pays sixty percent of the difference of what the employee is able to earn after being injured as opposed to the pre-injury "average weekly wage." The maximum weekly partial benefit cannot exceed seventy-five percent of the injured employee's weekly total disability benefit. The maximum period for collecting partial disability is five (5) years. If, however the injured employee collected temporary total disability prior to collecting partial, or at some point after collecting partial, the combined maximum for both sections 34 for temporary total disability and 35 for partial disability, is seven (7) years. This can be extended in those rare cases where the injury causes a seventy-five percent loss of function to an eye, hand, leg, foot, or arm or a permanent life threatening physical condition, or a permanent disabling occupational disease. In these cases, partial disability of up to ten (10) years is available.

Brendan, I cannot adequately communicate how meaningful your role has been in this life-altering experience. I can say "Thank You!". I do it from the bottom of my heart, but I thought I would attempt to show you just a snippet of the impact you have had on m life, and, i can imagine, on the lives of others like me. Blessings!

Brendan was great in my case. He was very professional and made sure I fully understood every step that was happening in my case. Every thing I signed he made sure I understood all the fine print and he explained it very well.He negotiated way more then what I thought I was going to receive. Brendan always stayed in constant contact with me and was very easy to get a hold of for any and every question I had about the process. Very thankful to have worked with him. Greg

"… I wanted to express my thanks and gratitude to you. You always said it was your job but it seems to me it is your calling. Anyone with enough hard work can be a lawyer or a nurse but not all can express empathy, compassion and infinite patience to guide others through a confusing and difficult journey …" Anonymus
