What Happens if an Employee Returns to work and Earns Less Wages than Before an Injury?

What happens if the employee returns to work earning less wages than before the injury?

The employee may be entitled to receive a partial disability check if the employee returns to work and the pay received for this work is not as much as the average weekly wage earned before the injury. The amount of this partial disability check will be two thirds of the difference between the average weekly wage the employee made before the injury and the weekly wage earned after the return to work. You normally must submit your pay stubs or have your employer submit pay information to the insurance company in order for you to receive your weekly checks on time.

Upon initial contact with Daggett Shuler, I received a prompt reply. Attorney James’ professional assistance and guidance was extremely appreciated. Also, Shelia’s prompt replies to my calls and concerns helped to alleviate a lot of stress during this time. I would definitely recommend Daggett Shuler to anyone who is in need of a good lawyer for a Workers’ Compensation case. Thanks for all of the hard work!
