Get the Most from Your Disability Benefits with Richmond Workers’ Compensation Attorney

An on-the-job injury may limit your ability to work and earn a living in Richmond. A Workers’ Compensation attorney can help you get the most from your Workers’ Compensation disability benefits, so you can focus on getting better.

When you are hurt at work, Workers’ Compensation is designed to pay for your lost wages. The amount of benefits you receive takes into account the extent of your injury, which is categorized in one of two areas.

Temporary Disability

This type of disability is expected to affect you for a limited amount of time. Fortunately, most injuries at work are temporary. A prognosis on your condition will help determine if the temporary injury is partial or total.

A partial disability means you are capable of performing some aspects of your job duties now. You may be cleared to work in just those areas until your injury is completely healed.

Permanent Disability

A diagnosis of permanent disability means you will always have this condition. It may be a partial disability, which limits you on the type of work you can do, or a permanent disability that prevents you from doing the job you once did. By law, to be permanently and totally disabled you have to have lost both arms, both legs, both eyes, hearing, or a have had a traumatic brain injury that would have left you ineligible for gainful employment in order to be able to seek permanent total disability benefits.

Whether your disability is temporary or permanent, you are entitled to benefits.  A Richmond Workers’ Compensation attorney can help you get the most from your Workers’ Compensation benefits, so you can rest easy.
