What Are Permanent Total Disability Benefits?
PTD benefits are paid when a worker cannot return to any employment as a result of severe injuries that occurred on the job. These benefits are a percentage of the workers' wages for the rest of their lifetime.
Are You Eligible for PTD Benefits?
To receive PTD benefits, you must be incapable of returning to any employment, even part time employment or employment that provides you with much lower wages. Companies and the Ohio Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC) will almost never grant these benefits without a fight, so you will likely need to go to court and have a judge find that you are permanently and totally disabled.
If you believe you are permanently totally disabled, you need our experience on your side to ensure you receive a fair hearing. Contact Bashein & Bashein at 216-539-8437 or toll free 888-340-5284 for a free consultation with an attorney.
