Suffering from Permanent Disability?

Fight for Your Deserved Compensation with an Injury Lawyer

Helping Families Respond to Disabling Injuries

Workers who have suffered an on-the-job injury that resulted in a permanent disability are prone to many hardships, including lost wages and long-term reduction of income that can result in significant financial stress. If the injured worker can no longer work in his or her original field, the individual must acquire new job skills and find employment in an unfamiliar market. Even if the person can return to the previous place of employment, employees with disabilities often earn less than other employees do.

A permanent disability like limb loss or paralysis is a life altering experience, and will inevitably have massive effects on the emotional and financial resources of the victim’s family. Workers with disabilities must reestablish simple daily routines, and they may never be able to accomplish basic tasks without assistance. Beyond the initial hospital stay, they may also require in-home care for months during their recoveries, which adds significantly to the overall financial cost.

The Hidden Effects of Permanent Disabilities

However, permanent disabilities are not only limited to outward physical injuries. Psychological conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and even depression can result from a daily workplace experience, which creates significant mental strain. Disability can also result from debilitating diseases like cancer, asbestosis and heart disease.

Whether a permanent disability is the result of an outward physical injury, disease or physiological trauma, you have the right to seek compensation for being exposed to unsafe or unhealthy working conditions under certain employment laws. Likewise, if the strains of employment worsened a preexisting condition, you have the right to seek compensation for being knowingly placed in harm’s way.
