Employees who sustain serious job injuries sometimes need permanent work restrictions. In this brief video, South Carolina workers compensation attorney Rob Usry reveals what permanent work restrictions are, who decides you need them, when you should expect to get them, and what they can mean for your case.
Hey folks we're talking about what permanent work restrictions mean for your workers comp case. These are lifelong limitations from the injury. The doctor gives them to you when you're as good as you're going to get. Most folks can expect to go back to work to see if they've got a job there that can accommodate those restrictions.
The real impact on your case is usually the financial settlement. If you've got serious restrictions you may qualify for totally disabled under workers comp, which doesn't mean totally helpless, or you might qualify for wage loss benefits which can also be extensive.
