Types of Disability
At Smith & Baltaxe, LLP, we help people from the San Francisco Bay Area with all aspects of workers' compensation claims. A workplace injury can lead to a disability which prohibits you from working. Under workers' compensation law, disability falls into two categories:
Temporary disability: If your doctor determines you are temporarily disabled, you are entitled to two-thirds of your average weekly income as well as compensation for medical bills.
Permanent disability: Compensation for a permanent disability can be paid in a lump sum, or in periodic payments over time. We will help you explore your options to determine which option best suits your needs.
Our attorneys have been standing up for the rights of injured and disabled workers for over 10 years and have a long track record of success winning results for our clients. We provide every client with high-quality legal representation, personal service and attention.
If a workplace injury has led to a permanent or temporary disability, we can help you seek the benefits you need from a disability claim. Contact us online or by telephone at 415-292-7800 to speak with an experienced California workers' compensation attorney. For your convenience, we offer free initial consultations.
