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
