No fault refers to FL automobile insurance. The Workers' Compensation law is different and can be quite difficult for claimants. Reach out for consultation about your case.

TTD means temporary total disability which is when a doctor has you OFF WORK completely (for example: often to try to give you time to recover from the injury or surgery due to the effects of the injury) When a doctor gives you light duty, you are no longer TTD. Instead, you are TPD or on temporary partial disability. Whether you are due money benefits depends on many factors including but not limited to whether you were the aggressor or whether you were terminated for cause/misconduct. I agree with Loren Gold in his recommendation to consult a workers compensation attorney for further guidance.

As Mr. Hilado said TTD means temporary total disability which means you are on a total off work status by your workers’ compensation doctor which is inconsistent with being put on light duty work. TTD checks are not affected by your being terminated at work since you are on a total off work status to be collecting TTD checks. Temporary partial disability checks (TPD for when you are on light duty) can be affected by your being terminated depending upon the reason for the termination. Lawyers use the term no-fault usually to mean our automobile personal injury protection system so we do not understand what you mean by Florida being “a no-fault state” as it relates to your workers’ compensation claim. Workers’ compensation is essentially a no-fault system to some degree meaning in order to qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, you do not have to prove that your accident was anyone’s fault.
