What Is a Permanent Disability?
A permanent disability refers to any lasting injury that affects your ability to go to work or participate in daily activities without accommodations. Many injuries can lead to a permanent disability.
- Traumatic Brain Damage: The brain is responsible for many body functions, such as movement, concentration, motor skills, and memory. Damage to any part of the brain during an accident can disrupt normal function.
- Spinal Cord Injuries: The spinal cord helps the brain communicate with the rest of the body, affecting movement and sensation. During an accident, the spinal cord can become severed, crushed, or compressed. Victims can experience permanent or temporary loss of feeling or function below the injury site.
- Internal Organ Damage: Internal organs can suffer from crushing and penetrating injuries during an accident, leading to internal bleeding and permanent damage. For example, if the lungs become crushed during an accident, a person can suffer from long-term breathing difficulties.
- Amputated Limbs: During an accident, a limb may be severed or become severely mangled, requiring amputation. The loss of a limb can make it difficult to return to work or adjust to daily life, even with a prosthetic.
What Are Your Legal Options after a Permanent Disability?
You may qualify for legal action if you are injured in an accident and developed a permanent disability. Your options for compensation will depend on if someone else caused the accident, and whether you were at work or not at the time of the accident.
In cases where you were not at work, you could file an insurance claim or lawsuit against the person responsible for the accident. For example, you could pursue legal action against a drunk driver who struck your vehicle, or a landlord who failed to repair a flight of stairs.
If you are injured on the job, you could file a workers’ compensation claim under your employer’s insurance coverage. You could also pursue a lawsuit if a negligent third party caused your accident.
In California, filing a workers’ compensation claim waives your right to file a lawsuit against your employer, although you may be eligible for litigation under certain circumstances. Speak to an attorney at Rose, Klein & Marias, LLP to discuss your legal options. From car crashes to pedestrian accident lawsuits in Ventura, we can help.
