Many injured workers throughout the state of Ohio come to learn that they are entitled to temporary total disability (TTD) compensation after the allowance of their claim. Temporary total disability compensation is awarded in instances where allowed conditions in a claim prevent an injured worker from returning to their former position of employment for a period greater than seven days. Temporary total disability is meant to provide a disabled worker wages that they would have received had the work place incident not occurred. These benefits are typically paid for a set period of time in which allowed conditions in a claim prevented the injured worker from doing their job. In situations where an injured worker requires surgery due to a work-related injury and needs time to recover before returning to work, they can receive TTD for that period of time away from their job.
