Permanent Disability

Seeking Permanent Disability Benefits in Oakland

One of the main reasons that injured workers hire a workers' comp attorney is to ensure that they receive the full amount of benefits available under the law, and this is especially true in cases involving permanent disability. A worker can be diagnosed with a permanent disability when he or she suffers an alteration of their capacity to meet personal, social or occupational demands because of impairment. The State of California designed permanent disability to compensate workers in part for the economic impact that their injury may have on their ability to compete in the labor market or their lost earning capacity.

Unfortunately, the amount of disability is determined by a state-created formula that does not always allow for the compensation that is needed or deserved. If you have suffered a workplace injury that has caused permanent disability, you must seek the help of an Oakland workers' comp attorney before you begin to seek compensation.

It is important to understand that your case will not increase in value over time and the sooner you settle your permanent disability case, the better.

In order to begin the process of seeking permanent disability, a qualified medical examiner must determine that your injuries are permanent and stationary. This means that you have reached your maximum medical improvement and that the state of your injuries will not change with or without medical treatments over a twelve-month period. However, it is common for people to continue to receive medical care under today's law even after they are permanent and stationary.

One of the most important factors in your permanent disability case is that your doctor must be the first one to declare that you are permanent and stationary. If the insurance company finds your status to be permanent and stationary first, they will stop your benefits until an attorney takes your case to court and goes through the litigation process.
