With offices in the Denver Metro area and serving the mountain communities of Summit County, The Brewer Law Offices P.C. represents employees from all industries who have suffered a wide range of disabling illnesses and injuries at work. If you are permanently restricted from work due to a job-related accident or other work-related condition, our attorney can help you get the money and benefits you deserve.
Impairment Ratings For Permanent Disabilities
After your workplace accident, your primary concern should be to seek medical treatment. Your authorized treating physician will determine when you reach your maximum medical improvement (MMI). If you still suffer from your work-related injury, you may be eligible for permanent impairment benefits, which are based on impairment rating guidelines.
Workers' compensation offers two different kinds of permanent disability benefits. The first is permanent partial disability (PPD) benefits, which require that you be capable of returning to work. The second is permanent total disability (PTD) benefits, which are for injured workers who cannot return to any type of work, even part time. Proving a permanent total disability is often a challenge.
Although you may be given the option to settle your case, you are not required to do so in order to receive permanent disability benefits. Such benefits usually involve a lump sum payment or weekly payouts.
