Champaign, IL, Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) Lawyers

In many situations, a worker never fully recovers from a work injury. In these situations, the individual’s earning potential is affected for the rest of his or her life. Fortunately, if a worker never fully returns to the pre-accident level of skill and efficiency, permanent partial disability benefits are available. At Woodruff Johnson & Evans, our Champaign permanent partial disability (PPD) attorneys have more than 70 combined years of experience in on the job injury compensation. We provide legal advice and representation to individuals who face financial peril based on their workplace injuries. PPD is any long-lasting injury or illness resulting from on-the-job activities. This disability might prevent you from returning to the same job, or same type of job once you have been medically cleared to do so. PPD benefits help make up the difference between what you used to earn, and what you can earn now based on your disability.

Aurora PPD Benefits Lawyers

Once a doctor states that you have reached maximum medical improvement, he or she must determine what permanent physical restrictions you will face for the rest of your life. This is generally presented as a percentage of loss of body part or a percentage of loss of the body as a whole. This percentage directly translates into a dollar figure that is calculated into your permanent partial disability. In other words, your disability is permanent, but only partially affects your ability to earn a living. The PPD benefits exist to bridge that financial gap.
