Have you been searching for a Minneapolis permanent disability workers’ compensation attorney? Look no further than Kennett, Sanford & Kramer. Here is why:
There are two different types of permanent disability benefits. These include permanent total disability and permanent partial disability. Permanent total disability is awarded to individuals who suffer permanent total disabilities. This might include the total and permanent loss of both eyes, the loss of both legs, the loss of both arms, paraplegia and the total and permanent loss of mental capacity. Permanent total disability benefits are paid at a rate of approximately two-thirds of the employee’s average weekly salary.
Permanent partial disability benefits are paid out when you have suffered a permanent partial disability, such as the loss of a body part or limb, that does not cause total disability. The amount that you will be paid is based upon the disability schedule. To find out what permanent partial disability benefits you could collect, contact our office today.
