Permanent Disability Claims in California

Representation From An Experienced Worker's Comp Lawyer In Fresno & Visalia

An injured individual's workers' compensation benefit package will be based on the extent of the disability he or she has suffered. Levels of disability are primarily determined based on whether they are temporary or permanent. With permanent total disability, there is no limit on the number of weeks that a person can be paid.

In such cases, an employee might be able to engage in employment as long as the combined income does not exceed the maximum amount allowed. If you have questions or require guidance for a permanent disability, speak with our Fresno workers' compensation lawyer at your earliest convenience.

How Permanent Disability Benefits Are Determined

For individuals who have had their wage-earning capacity decreased as the result of an injury, they have suffered permanent partial disability. Permanent partial disability is then further broken down into schedule loss of use and non-schedule categories, depending on the body part affected and the extent of the disability.

When California workers suffer permanent disabilities at the workplace, they are generally allowed to receive benefits through workers' compensation. The benefits received for permanent disability are based on a ranking system that is used to distribute compensation to workers with a variety of impairments.
