PERMANENT DISABILITY BENEFITS

 

Permanent disability benefits (PD) are benefits an injured worker can receive if they have not completely recovered from their work injury.  

 

A primary treating physician (PTP) or evaluator gives an injured worker a whole person impairment rating for each injured body part and this is adjusted by age and occupation.  

 

There is a maximum dollar amount a person can receive each week.  

 

A person’s permanent disability rating can range from 0% (completely healed) to 100% (total permanent disability).  

 

If you have questions about PD or workers’ comp, call Redula & Redula and meet with one of our attorneys.
