Definition of permanent total disability
A disability is permanent and total if it incapacitates a person to such a degree that he or she is completely unable to obtain employment. The following conditions generally render a person permanently and totally disabled under the law:
- Blindness in both eyes
- The loss of both legs
- The loss of both arms
Even if you have not suffered these specific injuries, you may still be entitled to compensation for a permanent total disability if you are otherwise seriously disabled. It is important to speak with a qualified Milwaukee permanent disability attorney to evaluate your individual case and determine whether you have a viable claim for either permanent total disability or permanent partial disability.
Calculation of awards
Once your permanent disability attorneys in Milwaukee have established the extent of your injuries, the state of Wisconsin determines how much compensation you receive for your disability. When calculating awards for permanent and total disability, the state considers only future potential losses, not medical bills or past damages like other worker’s compensation claims. The goal is to provide you with financial relief, since your condition most likely precludes you from being able to become gainfully employed in the future. With such high stakes, make sure you have skilled and experienced permanent disability lawyers in Milwaukee at your side throughout the legal process.
