Every injured worker hopes that he or she will fully recover his or her health and be able to return to earning a living. Unfortunately, not all injuries heal completely. Many leave lasting changes to a person's health and abilities that may leave an injured worker with permanent restrictions to the activities in which he or she can engage.
When an injured worker reaches a point where further recovery from his or her injuries is unlikely, that person is eligible for permanent disability benefits under the workers' compensation system. Like temporary disability benefits, permanent disability benefits equal two-thirds of your average weekly pay before taxes. However, permanent disability benefits also include an amount based on a schedule the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board uses. Payments you have received are deducted from the total value of your claim.
Because of the impact such disabling injuries can have on a person's life, it is critical that you take all possible steps to ensure that you receive the full workers' compensation permanent disability benefits and compensation you deserve.
