If you have suffered a permanent disability as a result of a work injury, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits above and beyond lost wages and medical expenses. At Barron Peck Bennie & Schlemmer, our experienced Cincinnati permanent disability claim attorneys are dedicated to obtaining fair compensation for clients who have been permanently injured at work. We can help you pursue all of the benefits you are entitled to.
Carefully Evaluating Your Case to Maximize Your Benefits
Whether you have become completely disabled from working or suffered a partially disabling injury, you need an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer. Our attorneys help clients pursue all types of Ohio permanent disability benefits, including the following:
- Permanent total disability (PTD): If your work injury has caused a permanent disability that prevents you from working in any capacity, you may be entitled to lifetime PTD benefits. When you apply for PTD, you must attend a medical examination and a hearing to determine your eligibility. The Industrial Commission has a very high standard of review on these claims, and the majority of claims are denied. Our attorneys can guide you through the complex PTD process and help you get the benefits you deserve.
- Permanent partial disability (PPD): If you have suffered an injury that will permanently affect your use of one or more body parts, you are entitled to a permanent partial disability award. Nearly every injured worker qualifies for a PPD award, but the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation will not automatically pay this award. Our attorneys can help you obtain PPD benefits.
- Scheduled loss awards: If you have an amputation or have lost full motion of a limb as a result of your work injury, our firm can help you pursue a scheduled loss award.
Our attorneys have more than 20 years of experience helping Ohio workers successfully pursue permanent disability claims. We are fully prepared to represent you at all hearings and other proceedings necessary to resolve your permanent disability claim.
If you can no longer work as a result of your disability, you may also be eligible for disability benefits through Social Security. Our Social Security Disability Attorneys can assist you with both your workers’ compensation and your Social Security claims, pursuing the maximum total benefits available to you.
