Madison and St. Clair County Work Injuries and Permanent Total Disability Benefits

If your injuries have left you incapable of working, you may be considered to have a permanent or total disability in the state of Illinois, which means that you need additional benefits that are greater and will last longer than ordinary workers' compensation benefits. In order to receive permanent and total disability benefits, it is important to speak with an experienced lawyer about your rights in the process.

At my firm of Galanti Law Office, P.C., I have worked with many injured workers who are considered to have a permanent and total disability. I understand the pain and stress that accompanies such a catastrophic injury and provide the compassionate, personalized legal service that they deserve. Helping injured workers recover benefits for medical treatment, future care and lost wages is critical for my clients.

Speak With an Illinois Permanent Disability Attorney About Your Options

There are different instances in which worker injuries may qualify for disability payments in Illinois. These include:

  • Statutorial permanent disability: A loss of both hands, both arms, both feet, both legs, both eyes or the complete and permanent loss of the use of those body parts would be considered a statutorial permanent and total disability.
  • Medical permanent and total disability: If a doctor states that you have permanent restrictions to your movement, due to severe neck, back or leg problems, you may be unable to perform the activities of your job and may be considered to have a medical disability. A doctor may also recognize that doing any sort of job will put you at risk of greater injury.
  • Odd-lot permanent and total disability: If you have permanent medical restrictions after being released by a doctor, you may be asked to go through vocational rehabilitation. If you complete this rehabilitation, and it is determined that no stable job market exists for you, you may be protected under odd-lot permanent and total disability benefits.
