If you have suffered a job-related injury and are unable to work, worker’s compensation will compensate for your lost wages. This benefit offered by your employer’s insurance company is called temporary total disability. This covers lost wages from being unable to work.
The maximum amount dispersed for your injury is determined each year by the Kansas Division of Workers’ Compensation. The amount is based on two-thirds of your average weekly wage, up to the limit determined that year.
This amount can be calculated by adding your gross wages, before taxes and other deductions are taken out, for the 26 week period before to your injury. Sometimes employers miscalculate your average weekly wages. In this case, a personal injury attorney can review your benefit calculation and decide if you are not receiving all the compensation you deserve from your work-related injury.
