Average Weekly Wage

Average Weekly Wage Workers' Compensation Benefits

Your disability benefits in a workers' compensation case in Tennessee will be calculated at 66 2/3 percent of your average weekly wage over the 52 weeks prior to the date of injury. While this may sound straightforward, in fact, there are often reasons to argue that the 52 weeks' average weekly income is an aberration — such as in the case of unemployment.

Nashville Tennessee Attorneys In Nashville Advocate On Behalf Of Injured Workers Entitled To Average Weekly Wage Workers' Compensation Benefits

When we at the Law Office of Donald D. Zuccarello represent clients in workers' compensation cases, we argue that our clients' 52 weeks should not include weeks when they were on vacation or sick leave and not earning their usual income. We sometimes point to cases of comparable employees when we argue our clients' cases in administrative hearings or courtroom proceedings.

These are just some salient examples of ways in which we help ensure that our workers' compensation clients receive all compensation they are entitled to, at the highest rates attainable. Our years of experience have given us knowledge and tactics that help maximize our clients' workers' compensation disability payments.

For 20 years, attorney Donald D. Zuccarello has been protecting the rights of injured workers and people injured in accidents outside of work. He and his associates have the skill and experience to handle your workers' compensation case to your best advantage.
