Bellevue, Washington, Disability Attorneys
When nothing else can be done to treat your injury, the Department of Labor & Industries assesses permanent disability or loss of bodily function. The workers' compensation benefits received for a permanent partial disability is a statutory award. The amount is based on the specific disability caused by the loss of bodily function due to neck, back, shoulder or other injury or occupational disease. If there is reason to believe the doctor did not correctly rate work impairment, the award can be appealed with the help of a skilled workers' compensation lawyer.
Do not give up on getting the full amount of benefits you deserve simply because you need money now. Statutory award checks can be cashed even if you want to appeal. It is important, however, that you begin working with an attorney immediately, because a protest or an appeal must be filed within 60 days of receiving the award.
The Seattle permanent partial disability attorneys at The Walthew Law Firm will seek to determine the proper rating of permanent impairment, to use as the basis for a successful appeal and increase of your benefits award.
