When your medical condition has reached a point that it cannot be improved, even with further treatment, then you may be assigned an impairment rating, or permanent partial disability (PPD). This can affect how long you receive Georgia Workers' Compensation benefits, which is why you may wish to speak with a Workers Comp lawyer in Atlanta.

The calculation of your PPD benefits is done by first calculating your temporary total disability (TTD).
This is done by inputting your average weekly wages and the date of your injury. From there you will be given a benefit rate.

PPD benefits are calculated depending on the part of the body that is injured, the benefit rate you received from calculating TTD and your impairment rating
(as assigned by your treating physician). This will provide you with your total PPD benefit.

The calculations can be complicated so you may wish to seek help from a lawyer who has experience handling Workers Comp cases.

An impairment rating can impact your Georgia Workers' Compensation case in determining how many weeks you can collect benefits. Speaking with a Workers Comp lawyer in Atlanta can help you learn if your claim is being handled fairly.
