Permanent Disability Benefits

When you suffer an injury at work that causes a permanent disability, you may be unable to return to your job or do the same work you did before the accident. Not only are you faced with long-term unemployment, but you also may need frequent and expensive medical treatments and care. This is a difficult situation, but you don’t have to face it alone.

Types of Permanent Disability Benefits

Workers’ compensation benefits that provide money to people who suffer permanent disabilities include:

  • Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) Benefits
    Workers who suffer injuries that affect parts of their bodies and aren’t expected to heal may qualify for PPD benefits. This may include conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, nerve damage, or loss of vision in one eye.
  • Permanent Total Disability (PTD) Benefits
    PTD benefits are awarded to workers who suffer disabilities that prevent them from returning to the workforce in any capacity. Conditions that quality for PTD benefits include blindness, paralysis, amputation, and more.

Determining the extent of your injuries and whether your disability is temporary, permanent, partial, or total can be confusing—and your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance may not give you the benefits you deserve. Don’t settle for decreased benefits. Let Ponce Law help.
