One of the most important aspects of workers’ compensation law is the concept of “compensable injuries.” In order to be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, an injury or illness must be directly related to an employee’s job duties. This means that if an employee is injured while performing a task that is part of their job responsibilities, they may be entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits. However, if an injury is sustained outside of the scope of an employee’s job duties, the employee may not be eligible for benefits.
To determine whether an injury is compensable, it is important to establish the causal connection between the injury and the employee’s job duties. This can be done by providing evidence of the specific circumstances surrounding the injury, as well as any relevant medical documentation. Our attorneys can help gather and present this evidence in a compelling and persuasive manner.
Another important aspect of workers’ compensation law is the concept of “permanent partial disability” (PPD). If an employee is unable to return to their previous job or earning capacity due to a compensable injury, they may be eligible for PPD benefits. These benefits are designed to compensate the employee for the loss of earning capacity caused by the injury.
At our law firm, we have extensive experience representing clients in PPD claims. We know how to gather and present the necessary medical evidence to establish the extent of an employee’s disability and the impact it has on their earning capacity.
