How Is Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) Determined

PPD is determined by your treating doctor providing an impairment rating to your whole body based on the American Medical Association’s Fifth Edition.  The best way to describe this process is to imagine your body as a pie with 100 pieces.  Your doctor may determine you have an impairment of 10% to your whole body, or 10 pieces of the pie are gone.

My Spouse Was Killed In A Work Injury - Am I Or My Children Entitled To Benefits?

If your spouse was killed in a work related accident, you are entitled to benefits. The Kentucky Workers Compensation Act provides for benefits for a surviving spouse and children. If that is the case, it is obviously an emotional time for the family. And I would like to help. If you have lost a spouse, call me and we can spend some time answering your questions and explaining exactly what your options are. I can be reached at 859.824.3361 or 859.781.9100.
