If you are a Connecticut worker who has sustained permanent bodily damage as a result of a work-related injury or illness, you may be entitled to receive permanent partial disability (PPD) benefits. You may also be eligible to receive additional wage differential benefits, subject to the discretion of a workers’ compensation commissioner.
How To Qualify For PPD
Once your attending physician determines that you have reached maximum medical improvement, he or she will determine your disability rating. The number of weekly PPD benefits you are entitled to receive depends on the body part that is injured and your doctor’s disability rating.
Given the complexity of PPD benefits claims, anyone who sustained permanent bodily damage should immediately consult an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer. In New Haven, or elsewhere in Connecticut, you can find the experienced legal representation you require at Gillis Law Firm.
