Permanent Disability

In some cases, a severe on-the-job injury can mean that an injured worker will never be able to work again in the same capacity. People in this situation not only face the pain and uncertainty of injury and the accompanying medical bills, but also the prospect of lost income, both during recovery and as a result of not being able to return to work fully. This is a serious situation for a person to be in. If you've been injured on the job, it's important to get in touch with a lawyer as soon as possible. In the Albany, Georgia, area, call our firm, Lee Durham, LLC, at 229-431-3036 to learn your rights and start building a plan for moving forward. You can also email us using this online form.

What Does Permanent Disability Cover?

Permanent disability benefits pay for a portion of your costs if you suffer a work injury from which you will not be able to recover fully. The amount that you will be able to receive in permanent disability depends on several things, including:

  • The extent to which your injury impairs your ability to perform job-related activities
  • Your age
  • Your occupation
  • Your earnings at the time of your disability

One of our attorneys at Lee Durham, LLC, can also advise family members of their rights in the event that a workplace injury results in a worker fatality.

It is essential that individuals seeking help for a permanent disability or loss of life on the job contact a lawyer right away. Time is of the essence in these kinds of claims, and the sooner a lawyer can start working on your case, the better the outcome is likely to be for you.
