Workers’ Compensation for Permanent Disability in Oregon
It is an unfortunate fact that sometimes severe or permanent physical impairments can occur because of a workplace accident. If this scenario should befall you, you can get assistance with your compensation claim by turning to Mark Thesing Inc. Permanent disability in Oregon is covered by workers’ compensation benefits to help replace wages you would have earned. However, there is a mountain of red tape to get through to ensure your claim is filed correctly. That is how we can help you. We know what is required and when it must be filed.
The definition of a permanent disability hinges on how long-lasting the effects of the injury prove to be for you. This level of disability is considered to exist when the impairment remains after you have been medically treated and allowed time to recover. It affects life function over the long term. A doctor will make this determination following a medical examination.
If you cannot return to work because of your level of disability, you may be eligible for vocational rehabilitation services to help you learn a new skill and re-enter the workforce. This benefit covers tuition and time-loss while training for your new job.
