Permanent Partial Disability

Nashville Permanent Partial Disability Lawyer

To qualify for permanent partial disability benefits under Tennessee workers' compensation laws, you need an impairment rating. The impairment rating will be determined on the basis of information found in the Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment, Sixth Edition, by the American Medical Association (AMA). A doctor's assessment of your physical condition in light of the information contained in this source will indicate what your impairment rating should be.

Are you seeking reassurance and direction regarding the benefits you are entitled to after a workplace injury in or near Nashville? Permanent partial disability? Attorneys at the Law Office of Donald D. Zuccarello can advise you on how to ensure that your impairment rating accurately reflects your disability.

It is not uncommon for workers to attempt to go back to work after a time of recovery following a workplace injury, only to discover or conclude that they cannot handle working anymore. A head injury, a lung injury or neck injury can leave lasting effects that make it difficult or impossible for a worker to meet the strenuous demands of a job despite great efforts.

If you have been discharged or plan to resign (or have resigned) after attempting to go back to work subsequent to recovery from a workplace injury, you may have a good reason to reopen your case and seek a different disability rating. We can advise you on how to select and work constructively with a doctor, for example. A doctor who understands your pain can help balance out the precise definitions found in AMA's Guides book on impairment evaluation.
