Permanent Disability Benefits

Workers' Compensation Attorneys in Sacramento

If you have suffered an injury or illness while at work you may be able to receive disability benefits through the workers' compensation system. One of the challenges that you may encounter revolves around what type of disability category you fall under.

Permanent disability benefits are designed to compensate workers for their lost wages while they cannot work. This may include benefits for injuries that only partially limit your ability to work or benefits for injuries that prevent you from ever returning to the same line of work ever again.

At Smolich & Smolich, our Sacramento workers' compensation lawyers can sit down with you during your free case evaluation, determine what types of benefits that you may be eligible for, and work diligently towards ensuring that you receive the compensation you need while you are unable to work and earn income.

What Benefit Categories Do I Fall Into?

The two types of permanent disability benefits that can be given include:

  • Permanent partial disability, which stems from an injury or illness that causes permanent damage but only partially limits your ability to perform the functions of your job
  • Permanent total disability, which stems from an injury or illness that causes permanent damage and renders you completely unable to perform the functions of your job, or of a similar job

Learn More by Scheduling Your Free Case Evaluation Today!

Because permanent total disability requires a medical diagnosis of 100% disability, these benefits are given far more rarely that permanent partial disability. Tell us more about your situation and learn more about the benefits that you may be eligible to receive through a free, no-obligation case evaluation from our experienced Sacramento worker's compensation attorneys.
