There is nothing worse than the thought of a serious workplace accident that causes permanent disability. When this happens, your life will be changed forever.
In addition to the personal changes you will go through, a permanent disability can result in lost wages and medical bills that never seem to end.
If you find yourself in this position, you need to learn more about permanent disability benefits. After all, you shouldn't have to personally deal with the impact of your injury (or illness).
Before you can receive permanent disability benefits, you need to focus on a few key details. First off, where and how did the accident occur? This could be anything from a construction site slip and fall to something caused by repetitive trauma.
From there, you need to focus on the impact of the injury. In order to receive permanent disability benefits, you must be able to prove that you will be out of work permanently. For this reason, you'll need to work closely with a qualified medical team.
There are times when a workplace accident results in an injury that only keeps you away from work for a few months. Conversely, there are situations in which a permanent disability will keep you off the job forever.
