What is a permanent partial disability rating?

Total or partial loss of use of a member of the body directly caused by a work related injury may result in permanent partial disability. The Industrial commission ultimately determines permanent partial disability based on the impairment ratings of physicians. When there is a permanent impairment to one or more of the parts of the body listed in The Worker’s Compensation Act, the employee may receive a set period of benefits without consideration of the employee’s ability to earn wages. Permanent partial disability benefits are generally based upon a combination of the impairment ratings, the parts of the employee’s body involved, and the employee’s average weekly wage.

We would highly recommend this firm ! My husband and I trusted this firm with our three daughters after they were in an accident, and it was a great decision! They made sure we understood every step of the way through the process and got it done! Thank you Daggett Shuler!
