Assisting Workers With Partial Disability Claims
Most people injured at work understand that they are entitled to medical treatment benefits and out-of-work benefits. What workers might not know, however, is that they may also be eligible to collect a monetary award after they have concluded their treatment.
If your injury causes any long-term disability or impairment, you are eligible for this additional compensation that is called permanent partial disability (PPD). Determining the extent of your partial disability, however, is not always easy. The workers’ compensation insurance company or your employer may have very different ideas about the nature of your injuries. To get the permanent partial disability benefits to which you are entitled, it is important to work with an experienced attorney.
At Law Offices of Kaplan & Kaplan, P.C., our lawyers have advocated for numerous clients before judges in the Division of Workers’ Compensation of New Jersey. Our firm will work hard to get you the maximum benefits available under the law. We will send you to our handpicked medical experts whose field of specialty matches up with your injuries. They will evaluate your condition and render a report that will be used in court to get an optimal outcome for your case. Our Paterson lawyers for partial disability always prepare a powerful case in support of your claim for benefits.
How Is Partial Disability Determined?
Following your course of treatment, a doctor will evaluate your condition. He or she will determine whether the workplace injury you suffered has fully healed, or instead is something that will be with you for the rest of your life. If your injury is severe and will continue to affect you, then the question becomes whether or not you can return to work. If you can, you are considered partially disabled. If you can no longer work at all, you are considered totally disabled.
