• Total Permanent Disability Claims in Springfield Illinois

    While certain work injuries are more common than others, some are also more serious, such as a traumatic injury or even an injury that could leave you with a permanent disability. If you suffer an injury that leaves you with the inability to perform your job, you have a workers’ compensation case for total permanent disability. Having a total permanent disability means you can’t perform your job and you are entitled to financial compensation. Having a total disability doesn’t solely affect you, but also your family and loved ones that rely on you financially. Contact LaMarca Law Office for more information about your rights and how to file a claim for total permanent disability.

  • Temporary v. Permanent

    There are various benefits packages for workers’ compensation claims. It all depends on a case by case basis. As stated before, if you suffer an injury that results in your inability to perform your job, that is a total permanent disability. If you suffer an injury but can still perform your job duties, that is considered a temporary disability. Your disability payments are dependent on the amount of money you make and how often you work. Normally, temporary payments are lower since the worker is expected to resume their responsibilities after a certain time period, as recommended by a physician.
