Attorney Helping You with Permanent Disability in Oregon
Some accidents might put you out of action for a few weeks or months; others might have a more permanent effect on your ability to work. So what do you do if you don’t recover completely? You turn to attorney Mark Thesing.
Total and permanent disability in Oregon is covered by workers’ compensation benefits in our state. If you are unable to recover after an injury or have developed a debilitating condition after exposure to specific working conditions, you are eligible to receive payments to substitute the wages you would have been able to earn.
To become eligible, you will need to visit your primary doctor. The doctor will perform a medical examination to determine your disability rating. They will then consider you either totally or partially disabled, depending on their findings.
How Much Money Will You Receive?
The number of benefits you receive varies greatly depending on a variety of different factors. Some calculations can even vary by injury types. As your attorney, I will work on your behalf to help you fight for the most benefits you are entitled to under Oregon law.
Whether you are looking at a lump sum or scheduled payments, I will advise you along with a team of outside experts to help you better understand where you stand, and what each offer means for you now and going into the future. Contact me to make sure you are making informed decisions when it comes to your permanent disability compensation.
