California Permanent and Total Disability Attorney

If you have been injured on-the-job and your doctor categorizes you as being permanently or totally disabled, you may qualify for certain benefits under California law. Total permanent disability (TBD) benefits are designed to help Californian's who suffer disabling workplace injuries recoup some of the costs of medical care, as well as offsetting any lost wages or diminished earning capacity.

Injuries that result in permanent or total disability are often catastrophic, and may uproot the entire course of your life. Some examples of a permanent or total disability injury include:

  • Blindness
  • Disfigurement
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Brain Injury
  • Amputation

It is incredibly important after any serious workplace injury that you get prompt medical attention, obtain copies of all records, and contact an attorney before settling on any claim amount. Without proper legal guidance, you may not get the compensation you truly deserve.

Determining Permanent Disability

To qualify for TBD, your doctor must determine that you are "permanent and stationary". That means that your injury cannot improve beyond what treatment has already done. Your doctor will determine the extent to which your injury impacts your ability to function, including your ability to work. Other factors will be examined as well, such as your age, overall health, and any other conditions you may have been diagnosed with.

Getting the Benefits You Deserve

It would seem that someone suffering from a disabling injury would be entitled to compensation that is equivalent to the injury and damage done. Unfortunately, there are very strict and complex laws governing the amount of benefits, and how they are determined. At The Law Offices of George Henderson, we are passionate about ensuring that our clients get the TBD benefits they deserve.
