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.

  • They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!

    “Thank you so much for your help. I was denied twice by social security disability. They are the most diligent and wonderfully. Yes it takes a while to get a hearing. If it wasn't for the great staff and attorneys here, I would have never been approved for disability. It was the best Christmas gift i received. They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!”

  • 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!”

  • Fantastic and Wonderful

    “Sarah Greer and Sam Eldaly from Smolich & Smolich are a fabulous team to work with. I had to apply for SSDI due to my Parkinsons and they handled it not only a professionals but as if they were sitting across the table from me in person the entire time. They are a dynamite team! I highly recommend them to anyone for a fantastic and timely managed experience. Thank you Smolich & Smolich!”

  • You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process.

    “I sincerely apologize for the delay! I truly thought I had already sent this off to almost 3 months ago! Thank goodness I had someone helping me clean and organize the apartment last week. She found your letter behind my bookcase. I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your support and dedication throughout my case. You were a true blessing to me. You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process. Just the fact that you returned a call so promptly was a very big deal to me. It let me know that I mattered to you, Sarah, and the firm. Thanks to the two of you I am finally settled in my own apartment and my mom was able to finally retire. So again, thank you from the depths of my heart for everything that you personally and your firm have done for me. You were true angels in my tie of need.”
