Temporary Disability Benefits

Sacramento Worker's Compensation Attorneys

The type and amount of worker's compensation benefits that you may be eligible to receive will depend on a variety of factors, including the severity of the injury, recovery time period, nature of the job that you perform, and more. If your situation will allow you to recover and return to work at some point, or even partially perform the functions of your job as you heal, you may be entitled to obtain temporary disability benefits.

Our experienced Sacramento workers' compensation lawyers at Smolich and Smolich have been helping clients throughout Northern California get the financial assistance they need for temporary time periods as they focus on making a complete recovery. Contact our firm today for more information.

The two types of temporary benefits that are given out through the California worker's compensation system are:

  • Temporary partial disability, which can be received if you are able to perform only some of the duties of your job for a limited amount of time while you recover
  • Temporary total disability, which can be received if you are unable to perform any of the duties of your job for a limited amount of time while you recover

Overcoming Challenges in a Complex System

Whether you fall into the total or partial disability category, our Sacramento workers' compensation attorneys have the know-how to handle every single aspect of your case. Working your way through the system and coming out the other end with the full amount of benefits you need can be a complex and confusing challenge. However, we have been assisting clients with such challenges for more than 40 years and will fight tirelessly to ensure you receive much-needed financial assistance while you recover from temporary work-related injury or illness.

  • You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process.

    “I sincerely apologize for the delay! I truly thought I had already sent this off to almost 3 months ago! Thank goodness I had someone helping me clean and organize the apartment last week. She found your letter behind my bookcase. I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your support and dedication throughout my case. You were a true blessing to me. You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process. Just the fact that you returned a call so promptly was a very big deal to me. It let me know that I mattered to you, Sarah, and the firm. Thanks to the two of you I am finally settled in my own apartment and my mom was able to finally retire. So again, thank you from the depths of my heart for everything that you personally and your firm have done for me. You were true angels in my tie of need.”

  • Thank you Sarah and team!

    “I needed to apply for disability and knew nothing about how to go about it. Sarah called me and explained the process and assured me everything would be okay. Her staff went online to fill out my application. She and Marlena kept me updated every step of the way. Within a short time a decision was made in my favor. I cannot tell you how many sleepless nights I had prior to meeting with the team. I would recommend them to anyone who needs help in this area. Thank you so much for all your hard work. Without you I could have never done this.”
