San Francisco Bay Area Lawyer(s) Handling Total Disability Claims
If you have permanently lost your ability to earn a living at any type of employment due to a work injury, you are entitled to receive permanent total disability (PTD) benefits. Your employer must compensate you for your loss of income and other expenses resulting from your disability, including medical bills and the cost of providing a handicapped-accessible home and vehicle.
San Francisco Bay Area Workers’ Compensation Injury Attorneys
At Fletcher B. Brown we have extensive experience helping people dealing with disabilities after devastating work accidents. We understand that no amount of money can make up for the loss of your physical health.
Our goal is to obtain maximum compensation to help you live comfortably for the rest of your life, and to hold the negligent party accountable for your injury and resulting disability.
Sometimes, it is difficult to know if an injury will result in total disability immediately. For example, a severe arm injury might first qualify for permanent partial disability (PPD). If the injury develops into reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) syndrome, the person may then qualify for permanent total disability benefits.
The process of applying for these benefits, as well as Social Security Disability benefits, can be time-consuming and complicated. Speak to one of our highly experienced lawyers for assistance with every aspect of your workplace injury. With our help, you can avoid lengthy delays and wrongly denied claims.
