Permanent and Temporary Disability Benefits: An Overview from a Workers' Compensation Attorney

There are differences between temporary disability and permanent disability status in workers' compensation cases. Attorney Craig A. Altman provides insight.

Obtaining workers’ comp benefits isn't easy. Although you are entitled to workers’ compensation for your on-the-job injuries, insurance companies are known for fighting against a majority of claims.”

— Craig A. Altman

VINELAND, NJ, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Workers’ compensation typically covers an injured worker’s necessary and reasonable medical treatment, prescriptions, and hospital services. Qualifying for disability benefits contains slight differences due to state laws. However, future benefits vary depending on the type and severity of injury sustained. There are differences between temporary disability status and permanent disability:

Temporary partial disability benefits – A worker who is injured on the job in either Pennsylvania or New Jersey is typically entitled to receive compensation until they are able to return to their original work position. An independent doctor chosen by the employer or the employer’s insurance company will usually make a determination about when the injured worker is healthy enough to return to work. If you are assigned a lower-paying job when you return to work, you are still eligible for benefits equivalent to two-thirds of the difference in pay.

Permanent partial disability benefits – A worker who is permanently disabled because of a work-related injury is eligible for workers’ comp benefits, with the amount depending on the extent of the injury and the individual’s functional loss. In New Jersey, the area of the affected injury determines the level of benefits. In Pennsylvania, if a doctor determines that the worker is less than 50 percent impaired according to American Medical Association standards, the worker’s injury will be classified as “partial disability.” PA law allows workers’ to recover two-thirds of the difference in wages if they suffer a partial disability and are unable to perform the same job they had prior to the injury.

Temporary total disability benefits – If you are temporarily unable to work as a result of your injury, workers’ compensation benefits are available for an extended period. A doctor will need to determine that you are at least 50 percent impaired as a result of your work-related injury. In New Jersey, workers receive 70 percent of their gross average weekly wage for up to 400 weeks, while PA law grants eligible workers two-thirds of their average weekly wage for up to 500 weeks if they suffer total disability. In both states, temporary total disability benefits are terminated when the worker is released to return to work or when the worker has achieved maximum medical improvement.

Additionally, in Pennsylvania, an employer may require the worker to undergo a medical examination after 104 weeks to determine if the worker is still at least 50 percent impaired. If the 50 percent threshold is no longer met, the worker’s status and benefits may be changed to partial disability.

Permanent total disability benefits – If you are unable to return to any kind of gainful employment, you may be eligible to receive weekly benefits for as long as you are considered totally disabled and unable to work. An attorney can help you determine whether you should receive these benefits in a lump sum or in weekly payments. There are pros and cons to accepting a lump sum payment, and an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can help you explore your options.

In New Jersey, permanent total disability is presumed when the worker loses a combination of certain body parts, including eyes, arms, hands, legs, and feet. In Pennsylvania, a doctor determines whether the worker is at least 50 percent impaired in accordance with American Medical Association standards.

Death benefits – If a worker dies due to an on-the-job injury, his or her dependents (typically a spouse and/or surviving children) may receive death benefits. In New Jersey, the death benefits are paid at a rate of 70 percent of the deceased worker’s weekly wages, while PA workers’ compensation death benefits are determined by the number of dependents. Additionally, dependents may be compensated for funeral expenses of up to $3,500 in NJ and up to $3,000 in PA.

Obtaining workers’ comp benefits is rarely easy. Although you are entitled to workers’ compensation for your on-the-job injuries, insurance companies are notorious for fighting vigorously against a majority of workers’ compensation claims. You need an attorney on your side during the negotiation process because insurance companies often offer low settlements to unrepresented parties. The key to getting a fair settlement and accurate classification of your injury status is to hire disability lawyers who understand how insurance companies operate in workers’ compensation cases.

Biofuels Key to Success of Clean Fuel Standard

Biofuels could provide 70% of the Clean Fuel Standard GHG reductions, and create $21.3 billion per year in ongoing economic activity and 12,614 permanent jobs.

We're in a race to attract global capital to expand Canada's clean fuels. A robust CFS can benefit Canadians in agriculture and forestry, and provide new solutions for urban and industrial wastes.”

— Ian Thomson, Advanced Biofuels Canada

OTTAWA, ON, CANADA, April 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Canada’s two largest biofuels stakeholders – Renewable Industries Canada (RICanada) and Advanced Biofuels Canada (ABFC), together representing almost 50 member companies – today released the results of a new study on the economic impact of Canada’s upcoming Clean Fuel Standard (CFS).

The study demonstrates that biofuels could be responsible for as much as 21.3 megatonnes (MT) per year of greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions by 2030 – approximately 70% of the 30 MT target set by the federal government. On this basis, study author, Doyletech Corporation, concludes that meeting the increased demand for biofuels with domestic production would:

• have a one-time construction phase impact of $9.6 billion and 47,100 job-years during the build-out period; and
• bring an increase of $21.3 billion per year in economic activity and 12,614 permanent jobs.

All levels of government would benefit from increased tax revenues, including: $1.69 billion per year for the federal government; $1.47 billion per year for provincial governments; and $107 million per year for municipal governments.

“This objective report provides yet more evidence that the Canadian biofuels industry can play a major role in further reducing greenhouse gas emissions from transportation, while creating jobs and economic growth,” said Jim Grey, RICanada Chair. “Our biofuels sector is poised to grow and build upon our past successes.”

Ian Thomson, ABFC President, stated that, “The drive to low carbon fuels is on, with Canada in a race to attract global capital to expand domestic clean fuels. This study shows how a robust CFS can benefit Canadians in agriculture and forestry, as well as provide new, economical solutions for urban and industrial wastes. If we had tallied lower health bills from cleaner air in our cities, the benefits would be even larger.”

Since 2010, Canada’s biofuels industry has been removing the CO2 equivalent of 1 million cars from our roads each year. Combatting pollution with biofuels already generates $3.5 billion worth of annual economic activity, and has created over 14,000 jobs (Doyletech 2013). The renewable fuels sector is a rural success story that has provided well-paying jobs and supports the agricultural sector. As farm outputs rise quickly due to new efficiencies, biofuels provide important price stability to farmers facing new market and trade challenges. As well, it provides additional value to animal fats and used cooking oils, and will increasingly tap new feedstocks such as municipal solid waste and forest residues. The biofuels sector is poised to play a critical role as the foundation of Canada’s clean fuel growth. A wave of innovation is building upon the successes of the last few decades as the industry continues to provide Canadians with renewable, clean-burning biofuels such as ethanol and biodiesel – and bring new low-carbon biofuels to the front line of the fight against climate change.

Northern Virginia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Hosts the 2018 Supplier Diversity Construction Matchmaking Event

NOVAHCC Matchmaking Focuses on the Commercial Construction Industry

The Northern Virginia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce offers a unique sourcing and matchmaking platform for private and public sector buyers, connecting them with our procurement ready Chamber members.”

— Susana Marino

TYSONS CORNER, VIRGINIA, USA, April 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Tuesday, May 8th, 2018, the Northern Virginia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (NOVAHCC) in partnership with Nationwide Insurance, Gabriel Zarate with Rogers & Goldbach Insurance and WMATA as transportation partner will be hosting a matchmaking breakfast meeting focusing in the commercial construction industry. The goal of facilitating this opportunity is to introduce procurement ready suppliers of products and services in construction and engineering with Primes, Government Contracting Officers, and Corporate Buyers. This event will take place at Valo Park, 7950 Jones Branch Drive, McLean, VA 22102 beginning at 9:00 a.m

Susana Marino, President of the chamber says: “We are offering a solution to buyers in the region, connecting them with procurement ready members, and this is part of the common effort we provide at our chamber, not only delivering contracting opportunities but advocating for more diversity and procurement inclusion opportunities for Latino business owners and other minorities wanting to do business with the government and large Buyers in the private sector. The business transactions start with the business matchmakings which are our signature events at Northern Virginia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.”

Buyers and Suppliers in Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC are invited to participate. However, encouraging the participation of women, Hispanic, minorities, and Veteran contractors is key to accomplish our goal. The one-on-one appointments will be pre-arranged between Buyers and Suppliers using software matching NAICS codes, past performance, procurement readiness capabilities, certifications in good standing, and other qualifications. This is a valuable opportunity for small businesses and minorities in the construction industry, as well as for Buyers to have a positive face-to-face interaction.

“In Fairfax County alone, 25% of Latino Businesses are in construction, but less than 7% of these businesses, enjoy the benefit of contracting with the government and large Buyers in the private sector due to not knowing the exigencies of the selection process. However, statistics show that once a supplier becomes the recipient of the first contract, the chances of getting a second one, increases by 80% and this are significant indeed and I feel already rewarded facilitating opportunities like this for the business community in the region” Susana Marino says.

Participating Buyers include Balfour Beatty Construction, Dominion Energy, Inc. FAM 66 LLC, Helsel Phelps, HOAR Construction, GSA, Lane Construction, Loudoun County, Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, Prince William County, U.S Air Force Small Business Division, United States Postal Service, Virginia Department of Transportation, Virginia PTAP, Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, and Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro). Still, many more are in the process of registering to participate in order to promote diversity and inclusion in their procurement processes.

Suppliers may register at www.novahispanicchamber.com/events after your payment is received, you will get a passcode to access the Matchmaking Registration Database. *You don’t have to be Hispanic or a minority to participate.

How do You Solve a Problem like Malaria?

Sahara Group is proud to present the “Sahara Group Editorial” (SAGE), an opinion style editorial designed to showcase our thought leadership.

LAGOS, LAGOS, NIGERIA, April 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Sahara Group is proud to present the “Sahara Group Editorial” (SAGE), an opinion style editorial designed to showcase our thought leadership and utilize our agency and influence for the purpose of enlightenment, entertainment and sparking a good debate. The first editorial is focused on Malaria:

How do You Solve a Problem like Malaria?

Africa, by sheer stroke of continental plate shifts and proximity to the equator, continues to grapple with the malaria scourge; a harbinger of death which according to UNICEF kills one child every 30 seconds, about 3000 children every day.

The word malaria actually has its origins in mid-18th century Italian (even though its symptoms were being detected in Ancient China almost 3,000 years BCE). Mala, meaning ‘bad’ and ‘aria’ meaning air were conjoined to form one word as the disease was incorrectly linked to being caused by inhaling and exhaling putrid air in swampy, tropical environments.

Studies on the disease have come a very long way since then, even though according to the WHO, the African region which is largely tropical and plagued by air pollution in most of its urban clusters continues to carry a disproportionately high share of the global malaria burden.

In 2016, the African region accounted for 90% of malaria cases and 91% of deaths thereof.
This puts the fight against malaria in a rather unique yet devastating position. If Africa can eradicate malaria completely, the scourge of the disease would effectively be vanquished the world over. On the other hand, a 90% death burden is too heavy a cross for any singular region to bear both in humanitarian and economic terms.
The plight of malaria victims in Africa has remained largely unchanged in over a hundred years. Despite the advancements in prevention and management of the disease, millions continue to fall sick or die in Africa whilst it has been virtually eliminated in other parts of the world including neighboring North Africa and the Middle East.
The majority of malaria infections in Africa are caused by Plasmodium Falciparum which is the most dangerous of the four human malaria parasites. The population of said parasite also happens to be disproportionately skewed towards the sub-Saharan African region.

According to The Against Malaria Foundation report compiled in 2010, up to 40% of all outpatient visits to clinics and hospitals in sub-Saharan Africa are for malaria diagnosis and treatment.
Treatment of the disease is often hampered by a delay in reporting symptoms, misdiagnosis, and the unavailability of necessary drugs.

The situation is exacerbated by the swathes of sub-Saharan Africans who live below the poverty line-the worst victims being children. Studies have shown that Under-5 (years of age) mortality rates spike amongst the children who come from the lowest socio-economic groups.

Poor families due to ignorance, the lack of wherewithal or a combination of both often do not protect themselves with insecticide-treated nets, or readily accessible preventative medicine.
Malaria may not always be given top priority when health-related policies are shaped and budgets are drawn because It is not considered a chronic disease. Despite glaring WHO facts and figures to the contrary, it isn’t necessarily considered a cause of deathly concern either because Africans have a genetic resistance to malaria which means our bodies can combat the disease with an arsenal which simply isn’t available to our Caucasian cousins.
This circles back to the matter of socio-economic status and how success rates in fighting malaria are usually commensurate with an upper ranking in the social-economic pyramid.

The people with a supposedly “higher resistance” to the malaria parasite tend to reside in brick and mortar homes with indoor plumbing. They usually have white collar jobs and tertiary level educations.
The future success of malaria may not necessarily lie in our readiness to beat it. Rather, it hinges on how successfully it can be managed in the region it has blighted the most-sub Saharan Africa.
Unless literal seismic changes occur within our natural environment, it is far-fetched to expect that malaria can be eradicated in the medium to long-term in the way smallpox was almost forty years ago.
Efforts should be galvanized towards eliminating child mortality rates and ensuring that proven methods of prevention and management such as the proliferation of insecticide scented nets in low-income communities are given all the institutional and systemic impetus they need to be efficient.
In the last four years, the WHO reports that investments in malaria control have been decreasing. After a significant reduction in malaria infection numbers in 2010, the WHO reported that infection levels spiked by 5m between 2015 and 2016.

A lack of capital is possibly the greatest threat to the management of malaria and our ability to save lives via concerted inter-regional efforts.
If a cash crunch is reversing what was previously great progress, we can take comfort in knowing that we have expeditiously and succinctly identified the problem. Our next challenge is to double down on fundraising efforts with clarity, focus, and speed.
A generous and sustainable eco-system of finance may just mean that malaria eradication can be discussed as something within the realm of an indigent sub-Saharan African child’s lifetime and reality.
