Permanent disability is defined as any illness, injury, or medical condition which cannot be reasonably expected to improve over time. This may prevent a victim of permanent disability from ever being able to work again. Here are some common types of permanent disabilities which may have been caused by an injury.
Back and spinal injuries – the most common disability in the U.S. is some form of spinal injury. This may have been the result of being overworked due to poor regulations or poor management, or due to a catastrophic event such as an auto accident or construction accident.
Neurological or brain injuries – this may take the form of an injurious accident or be the result of exposure to dangerous or toxic chemicals resulting in headaches, seizures or other complications
Paralysis – the inability to feel or move an extremity can certainly prevent individuals from returning to work. There are many forms of paralysis, and severe cases are permanent and irreversible. In many cases, severe paralysis was caused by a single injurious incident.
In general, there are two potential avenues to compensation for the victim of some kind of permanent disability. The first is through a social security claim which has specific requirements, considerations, and compensation levels. To learn more, you can view the Social Security Administration website here.
On the other hand, if your injuries are due to the reckless or negligent behavior of another party, you may instead wish to work with our Little Falls personal injury lawyers and file a personal injury claim. A successful personal injury claim will recover financial compensation for present and future damages, as well as damages for thing like loss of enjoyment of life and physical and emotional pain and suffering, something that a workers’ compensation claim or social security claim will not account for.
