Some injuries are longer lasting than others, and if you are facing the prospect of not being able to return to work, there are benefits available to keep you financially stable.
If you’ve lost the use of one of your arms, hands or legs in a workplace injury, and are not expected to ever fully regain control, it is called a permanent partial disability. This term applies to the loss of use of any body part deemed instrumental in performing your job function.
The workers’ compensation attorneys at Kaplan Lawyers PC understand how devastating this news can be, but we want to inform you that there are still ways in which you can provide for yourself and your family. Workers’ compensation benefits can help cover your medical expenses, provide for ongoing treatment, and even recover portions of the wages you’ll lose after you leave work.
The experienced and knowledgeable attorneys at Kaplan Lawyers PC have dealt with many workers’ compensation benefits cases in the past. We understand that oftentimes the hardest part in proving permanent partial disabilities to your employer or insurance company is that your injuries were sustained at, or due to, your job.

With Kaplan Lawyers PC, you’ll receive multifaceted and attentive support through the entirety of your legal process.
