If a person suffers a work-related injury and, after medical treatment, only achieves a certain level of recovery, he or she may be eligible for permanent disability benefits.
It is important to seek help from legal counsel to determine the options that may be available to you.

How Much Compensation Can I Expect?
In California, the amount of compensation a person can expect to receive from permanent disability depends on the severity of the injury. If your injury is so severe that it is unlikely that you will ever be able to work again in any capacity, you may receive permanent disability compensation for the rest of your life. These types of cases are rare.
Permanent disability may include:
- Chronic illness
- Hearing loss
- Vision loss
In most instances, a person may be considered to be partially disabled but will be able to return to the workforce in some capacity at some point in time. The amount of compensation and the length of time the compensation lasts will vary based on how the injury is rated. Our lawyer can help explain the process in more detail and let you know what to expect moving forward.
