Taking the Mystery Out of Permanent Total Disability Claims

After experiencing a serious work-related injury, you may be concerned with making ends meet if you are unable to work. After notifying your employer and filing a workers' compensation claim with the Workers' Compensation Board, a medical doctor will evaluate your condition to determine the extent of your injuries and the type of benefits you are entitled to.

Lifetime benefits are only awarded to individuals diagnosed with permanent total disabilities. Injured workers with permanent total disabilities are not expected to fully recover or return to the workforce. The medical evaluation you receive can make all the difference in the amount of compensation you can secure. You have a right to be treated by your own doctor. However, your company's insurance company can also select a doctor to conduct an independent medical evaluation. Doctors commonly have conflicting opinions.

Our legal team has extensive experience representing clients wrongfully diagnosed with permanent partial disabilities. If your doctor has reason to believe you will not fully recover, we can have your claim reconsidered. Our work will not rest until you have secured the lifetime benefits you are entitled.
