Personal Injury and Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Are You Getting Wage Loss Benefits?

When you are injured on the job, you are entitled to wage loss benefits if your injury causes you to miss work or to lose wages. The workers’ compensation carrier is obligated to pay you a portion of your earnings as long as you are unable to work.

The sooner you contact an attorney, the better. The lawyers at Legler, Murphy & Battaglia, LLP, can help you submit your wage loss claims to the insurance carrier. We work on behalf of all injured workers who experience difficulty with obtaining their wage loss benefits. We can make sure you get what you are entitled to and help prevent insurers from:

  • Pressuring you to say things or sign documents that could limit your rights
  • Making mistakes in your benefits calculations
  • Denying compensability of your injuries
  • Contesting whether your injury is really work-related
  • Denying payment of wage loss benefits
  • Reducing your wage loss benefits
  • Terminating your benefits early

Legler Murphy & Battaglia, LLP, is protecting the rights of injured workers throughout Bradenton, Sarasota and the surrounding communities since 1989.

Types of Wage Loss Benefits

  • Temporary Total Disability (TTD): When you cannot work at all, you can receive these wage loss benefits. The amount is generally two-thirds of your average weekly pay, up to a maximum rate.
  • Temporary Partial Disability (TPD): These benefits are paid if you are not yet fully recovered, but are able to perform light duty work. The Bradenton wage loss benefits attorneys will help you navigate the complex workers’ compensation law and explain the law in terms you can understand.
  • Permanent Total Disability (PTD): These benefits are paid if your injuries are so severe that you can never work again. We are here to assist with filing and successfully litigating your PTD claim.

We help clients determine their average weekly wage and what they can expect to receive as compensation while they are off work based upon their eligibility and injuries.

I had the privilege of working with Kelli Martinez as my personal injury attorney, and I can't express enough how grateful I am for her exceptional guidance and support throughout the entire process. From the moment I first contacted her to the conclusion of my case, Kelli demonstrated an unwavering commitment to ensuring my rights were protected and that I received the compensation I deserved. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking legal representation for personal injury cases.

Mr. Murphy and his team were amazing to work with. In a stressful situation they were on top of making sure I understood my options and walking me through the process when I’d stress out. He fought to make sure I was fairly treated and not just another person swept under the rug and forgot about. I highly recommend him if you ever need and hope to have a timely resolution and team that is top notch.

I am very grateful to Ed Murphy for accepting my case against work compensation, otherwise I wouldn't have had another doctor for a second examination and I would have been at home without being able to work again. I am thankful for all the work Ed and his assistant Jessica have done in my case. I am very happy with the service, every time I called I was treated very nicely by the front desk staff, Kelly. Thanks

I highly recommend Mr. Murphy. He immediately responded to the issues I was having with my workers compensation case. He reached out to me in a timely manner. I was always able to get ahold of him via the phone and emails. I never felt rushed in our meetings and conversations. He was professional and courteous. I am very satisfied how quickly I received my settlement.

I highly recommend contacting Ed Murphy with your worker's compensation case. From day one he took the time to explain all aspects of the case, listened to my questions and concerns, and kept me up-to-date as the case progressed. I believe he was able to achieve the best possible outcome with my case, and I couldn't be happier to have worked with him. I had never hired an attorney before, but he immediately put me at ease and had my trust. Great experience from start to finish!
