Did you know that you may be entitled to wrkers’ compensation benefits even when you fail to lose any time from work for an on-the-job injury?

YES. This is true.  What many injured workers may not realize is that even though you are albe to successfully return to work within a day or within a few days following an injury, you still may receive workers’ compensation benefits in the form of a permanent partial impairment award.  Permanent partial impairment awards compensate the injured workers for ongoing physical or mental impairments associated within on-the-job injury regardless of whether that injured worker had lost any time.

For more details regarding your entitlement to a permanent partial impairment award contact our workers’ compensation attorneys, Ellen McCarthy and Benjamin Wiborg.
