Permanent Disability

August 28th, 2014

In a recent case, the Workers’ Compensation Board held that, because the insurance company had reopened the injured worker’s claim for both a new medical condition and an aggravation of a previously accepted condition, the worker was entitled to have both conditions rated for permanent disability when the claim was closed.  This resulted in a greater disability award for the injured worker. If you have questions about your on-the-job injury claim, including your possible entitlement to permanent disability benefits, contact the law office of Philip H. Garrow at 541-382-3736.
