Types Of Permanent Disability
Cases involving permanent disability in Georgia are usually resolved in one of two ways:
- Permanent partial disability (PPD): You receive a lump sum of cash based on which part of your body was injured, the amount of your weekly checks and how severely you are disabled.
- Permanent TTD: If your doctor believes you have been catastrophically injured, you may be able to get weekly TTD checks for the rest of your life. When your case is this serious, you have to take numerous steps to get it recognized as catastrophic so that your care is paid for. This is a complicated process, and it is extremely beneficial to have Mr. Gentry’s assistance when applying for permanent disability following a catastrophic injury.
If you are unable to return to work after an on-the-job injury, Mr. Gentry ensures that your case receives the time and personal attention that it deserves, and he uses his years of experience to your advantage.
