Every situation is different and anyone who is injured on the job suffers from the effects in a unique way. This is why it is so important to have a workers’ compensation lawyer who understands how to individualize the permanent effects of a work related injury and present them to the judge so that an accurate and fair award of permanent disability can be secured. In some cases, you may start off receiving temporary disability benefits but your doctor may eventually decide your condition is likely permanent, which may allow you to receive permanent benefits.
If you get hurt on the job, it is important that you understand that workers’ compensation (sometimes referred to as workman’s compensation) may be your only means of receiving compensation for a work-related injury.
Follow these steps to help secure permanent disability benefits:
A work-related back injury, neck injury, head injury, spinal cord injury, amputation or traumatic brain injury, occupational illness, or a catastrophic injury are permanent effects should be documented by doctors. This will help you receive permanent disability and long-term wage replacement benefits that you are entitled to.
