Work injuries can be very serious and oftentimes result in the individual not being able to work for a certain period of time, if not indefinitely.
There are several different types of work injuries and there are different claims that one can file depending on their injuries. A work accident can result in a temporary total disability, permanent partial disability, and permanent total disability. Each type of injury results in a different type of work injury claim.
Read about the different types of work injuries:
Temporary Total Disability – your injury will keep you from work for a certain amount of time
Permanent Partial Disability – you have a permanent injury, but will still be able to work
Permanent Total Disability – your injuries will keep you from ever returning to your job
