Question: What are disability benefits?
Injuries from accidents occur in many different settings. Sometimes the injuries arise from an automobile or motorcycle accident, other times they may occur as the result of a dangerous condition on another person's property or perhaps from the use of a product which malfunctions or is improperly designed. In the worst of circumstances, injuries can result in the wrongful death of a person leaving behind surviving family members to deal with the emotional and financial losses caused by the wrongful death.

Disability benefits represent part of your monthly earnings. Disability benefits may be available even if you were unemployed at the time of the accident. You must be unable to work due to the injuries received. If you were unemployed at the time of the accident, your benefits can be calculated on past income and present ability.
If you were employed at the time of the accident, the law allows you to collect up to 85% of your monthly income up to a maximum amount of $900.00 per month in disability benefits. These benefits normally do not run for more than one year. Of course, you may purchase increased or deluxe benefits as noted above, which can dramatically increase your monthly disability benefits figure.
