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.

    “I would totally still be lost in the red tape of the social security system without the help of my attorney Sarah Greer and my case manager Sarah Cummings. You ladies rock!! Thank you so much for all your help getting my award. I would personally recommend this law firm to anyone needing help with their claim.”

  • I am so happy to have such knowledgeable and helpful people to help during this difficult time. Sam was super responsive and always willing to answer questions, regardless how big or small.

    “My circumstances were a bit unusual - my husband applied for Social Security Disability, but unfortunately passed away during the review process. Sam and Sarah worked diligently to see the case through to the end, and provide our family the benefits we were owed. A special thank you to Sam, he was always very responsive, willing to go above and beyond, and willing to answer questions whether big or small. Thank you, Smolich and Smolich!”

    Smolich and Smolich is so helpful!

  • They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!

    “Thank you so much for your help. I was denied twice by social security disability. They are the most diligent and wonderfully. Yes it takes a while to get a hearing. If it wasn't for the great staff and attorneys here, I would have never been approved for disability. It was the best Christmas gift i received. They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!”

  • Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!!

    “Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!! Rob Smolich took my case himself and was so helpful in every step of the way. I cant say anything negative about Smolich & Smolich. I had a lawyer before him and he was way more personable. His office took all the stress off my back and made me feel at ease during the time period of waiting. Have nothing but good things to say about this company. They are completely professional!!!!”

  • Fantastic and Wonderful

    “Sarah Greer and Sam Eldaly from Smolich & Smolich are a fabulous team to work with. I had to apply for SSDI due to my Parkinsons and they handled it not only a professionals but as if they were sitting across the table from me in person the entire time. They are a dynamite team! I highly recommend them to anyone for a fantastic and timely managed experience. Thank you Smolich & Smolich!”
