If your employer rejects your claim for this reason it is your attorney's job to prove your work injury was industrial related.
Temporary partial disability is one that prevents you from doing some of the duties of your job for a limited amount of time.
Permanent total disability is one that prevents you from ever returning to work.
Permanent partial disability occurs when the damage is permanent, but it only partially impairs your ability to work.
