Temporary Total Indemnity for a neck Injury
Temporary Total Indemnity, also referred to as TTD, is compensation for wages lost as a result of your neck injury. Typically temporary total indemnity is equal to 66% of wages that you are unable to earn as a result of your workplace injury. You will be paid this amount for the length of time that you are unable to work due to the injury. This compensation is not taxed and in most cases is equivalent to the amount you normally earn after taxes. It is important that you speak with a lawyer to discuss how much compensation that you can expect from TTD. Some jobs that have a base salary with additional compensation based on commission can complicate the amount of TTD money that you receive.
