Long-Term and Permanent Injuries

Fighting on Behalf of Injured Workers

When workers are injured on the job, workers' compensation benefits is supposed to pay for all necessary medical treatment. Workers can also collect partial wages temporarily until they are about to return to work. But what if they are left with long-term and permanent injuries? The workers' compensation attorneys at Tabor Law Firm, P.A. fights to get these workers all of the benefits they deserve.

There are two types of benefits that can help workers who have suffered long-term and permanent on-the-job injuries:

  • Permanent partial disability-This applies to workers who are able to return to work, but are left with a disability that leaves them unable to earn as much as before their injury. They are eligible to receive two-thirds of the difference between their pre-injury and post-injury wages.
  • Permanent total disability-Some workers are left unable to work at all. They have lost use of both hands, or both legs, or suffered a combination of losses that left them disabled. These workers are eligible to receive two-thirds of their average weekly wages before the injury.
