Pursuing Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) Benefits
In addition to medical benefits, which are consistent in the workers’ compensation system, injured workers are also eligible for benefits due to permanent damage. These benefits vary depending on the nature and the severity of the injury involved. When the injury is permanent damage, the wage benefit that applies is permanent partial disability (PPD).
At the Philip J. Fulton Law Office, we have more than 35 years of experience. We know how to quickly determine eligibility for PPD workers’ compensation benefits. If we determine that you are eligible for PPD, we will take action to make certain you get the amount you deserve.
What Is Permanent Partial Disability?
This benefit is a damage award for a permanent injury. It covers permanent injuries of two types: permanent damage to a body part and loss of use of a limb.
If a work accident has led to loss of arm, loss of leg, loss of hand, loss of finger, loss of eye or any other type of amputation, the victim is entitled to a damage award.
If a work accident has led to permanent pain and limitations with other body parts, the victim is entitled to a damage award. If the accident has led to constant lower back pain or constant shoulder pain, you are also entitled to an award.
Our lawyers take great care to see that you get all of the compensation you are entitled to. If you have suffered a serious and permanent work injury, we can help.
