Once you have reached Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI), and are released from the doctor’s care, we can help you obtain an award or settlement to compensate you for your Permanent Industrial Disability.
Permanency can take many forms, including, but not limited to:
- Percentage loss of use of a part of the body
- Wage differential
- Total permanent disability
- Loss of vocation
Do you have a case for compensation?
- If you are released to return to full duty work, you could be entitled to a percentage loss of use of the part of the body that was injured.
- If you have no permanent disability, but have suffered scarring or burns on certain parts of your body, you could be entitled to money for the disfigurement.
- If you have permanent restrictions and cannot perform your old job and now are making less money, you could be entitled to a wage differential.
- If you cannot work in any capacity you could be entitled to total permanent disability benefits.
- If you have permanent restrictions and cannot perform your old job, you could be entitled to money for loss of vocation.
As our client, we will explain your rights and potential benefits and maximize your recovery.
