Permanent Disability Benefits
Applying for Workers' Compensation
Were you injured at work? You deserve compensation for your injuries! Most employers will provide workers' compensation, but sometimes the amount of money that they provide will be low in comparison to the amount that you could be getting paid. With the assistance of an attorney from Meyerkord & Meyerkord, you will receive outstanding representation for your case and may be able to receive the highest amount of workers' compensation available.
Sometimes, injuries sustained while on the job are so devastating that victims will be unable to work ever again. These injuries usually result in high medical bills, surgeries, rehabilitation, and lost wages, all of which can be significantly detrimental to you and your family. This may be particularly difficult if you were the sole breadwinner of the household. If you were injured, you deserve payments from workers' compensation. Determining permanent disability benefit payments are done on a rating scale. The total amount of disability will be determined by the type and severity of the injury, the percentage that was determined for your disability, and what your average weekly income was prior to the injury.
How long will I receive payment?
A permanent disability often means that the victim will no longer be able to work or will have to learn a new trade in order to retain income. If you are determined to be injured enough to be out of work for at least 14 days with a 3-day waiting period, then your payments may be made to you every 2 weeks until the entire workers' compensation benefit is paid. If you need assistance in determining what your disability payment may be or how long your payments may be made to you, do not hesitate in calling Meyerkord & Meyerkord today.
