What Is A Permanent Partial Disability?

A PPD is a condition in which an individual sustains an injury that results in permanent impairment but does not completely prevent them from returning to work. This type of disability often affects an individual’s ability to perform certain tasks or activities. Examples include:

  • The loss of a limb
  • Partial paralysis
  • Permanent damage to a specific body part

In workers’ compensation claims, determining the extent of permanent partial disability involves assessing various factors, such as the severity of the injury, its impact on the individual’s ability to work and potential future medical treatments.

Workers’ Comp Benefits Available For A Permanent Partial Disability

Workers’ compensation benefits for permanent partial disability are designed to provide financial support to individuals who have suffered lasting impairments due to work-related injuries. These benefits include:

  • Compensation for medical expenses
  • Vocational rehabilitation
  • Disability payments based on the extent of the impairment

Permanent disability (PD) benefits are initiated once Temporary Total Disability (TTD) ends and the employee reaches Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI).

If these benefits are paid periodically after TTD or concurrently with Temporary Partial Disability (TPD), they must continue without interruption, following the same intervals as TTD payments.
