When you get hurt at work, you may be unable to continue working if the injury is serious. If the employer’s insurance company has accepted responsibility for your injury, they will pay Temporary Total Disability (TTD) benefits, or 2/3 of your average weekly wage, while you receive treatment, until the doctor says you can go back to work. Once your doctor says you can go back to work without restrictions, the insurance company will either ask you to return to work for your employer or file a document with the Industrial Commission seeking to terminate your TTD benefits.
