How Do I Receive My Permanent Disability Money?
What If I Don’t Recover Completely?
Total and permanent disability benefits are paid out to individuals who are unable to recover completely after an injury, or who have developed debilitating conditions after exposure to certain working conditions. They are meant to substitute the wages you would have earned. The doctor that conducts your medical examination will determine your disability rating; you may be considered totally or partially disabled depending on those findings.
How Much Money Will I Receive?
Benefits vary greatly and depend on many different factors. Every state has its own approach to calculating benefits. Some calculations even vary by injury type. If you do not feel your payments are adequate based on the information you provided, it is recommended to speak with a workers’ compensation attorney.
Workers’ comp disability settlements are another option for disabled workers. With this option, you can elect to receive a lump sum, rather than scheduled payments. There are many advantages and disadvantages to this option, and it may be a better option for some individuals. I recommend you get in touch with my office before you make your decision to find out more.
