What Is the Difference Between Total & Partial Disability?
In the state of Pennsylvania, a worker is considered totally disabled if
their injury or accident has caused them to be at least 50% impaired and
cannot continue doing their job, as determined by a trained medical professional.
Partial disability payments, on the other hand, are given to injured victims
for up to 500 weeks. Being partially disabled, according to state law,
means that you can eventually return to work, even at a lower paying job.
Both total and partial disability are equal to about two-thirds of your
average weekly wages, and do not take into account cost-of-living increases
or raises. While these payments are less than what you were making, they
are vitally important to help ensure that you and your family do not needlessly
suffer financially when you’ve been injured.
