Permanent Total Disability
All persons assigned to permanent impairment benefits receive permanent partial disability (PPD). There are those that are injured to a point at which they can no longer work in any capacity. These individuals will receive what is called permanent total disability (PTD). Similar to temporary total disability (TTD) benefits, PTD benefits are generally defined as two-thirds (2/3) of the worker’s wages for the lifetime of the worker.
Many factors are factored into this situation, including:
- Work restrictions
- Job experience
- Available positions in the workers’ field
- Geographic area
As you might imagine, it is difficult to get an insurance carrier to admit that a person is permanently totally disabled and cannot return to any kind of work, even part-time work, or work which earns in a lower wage. This is another area where it is helpful to have an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer on your side. By making an informed argument on your behalf and demonstrating your injuries to the judge, the court can order that an injured worker is permanently totally disabled, and then the insurance company must comply with the judge’s orders.
