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 and 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.

  • Thank you Sarah and team!

    “I needed to apply for disability and knew nothing about how to go about it. Sarah called me and explained the process and assured me everything would be okay. Her staff went online to fill out my application. She and Marlena kept me updated every step of the way. Within a short time a decision was made in my favor. I cannot tell you how many sleepless nights I had prior to meeting with the team. I would recommend them to anyone who needs help in this area. Thank you so much for all your hard work. Without you I could have never done this.”


  • I am so happy to have such knowledgeable and helpful people to help during this difficult time. Sam was super responsive and always willing to answer questions, regardless how big or small.

    “My circumstances were a bit unusual - my husband applied for Social Security Disability, but unfortunately passed away during the review process. Sam and Sarah worked diligently to see the case through to the end, and provide our family the benefits we were owed. A special thank you to Sam, he was always very responsive, willing to go above and beyond, and willing to answer questions whether big or small. Thank you, Smolich and Smolich!”
