VIDEO: Who Pays If My Condition Worsens After A Settlement?

Workplace injuries can be tricky. They often worsen in unpredictable ways and a long time after the injury occurs. Sometimes this even happens after you've reached a settlement on your workers' comp claim. In this video, workers' compensation attorney David Stradley discusses who has responsibility for new medical bills should this happen to you:


Permanent and Partial Disability

Permanent partial disability (PPD) is one of the most common types of workers’ compensation disability claims. Accounting for over half of all workers’ compensation claims nationally, PPD occurs when your injury is severe enough to result in a loss of some function, but will not interfere with your ability to work in the future. Permanent total disability (PTD) occurs when your injury is significant enough that you will never be able to work again.

My experience with the firm was excellent.  Everyone went way beyond their means to help me.  Time was taken to really work with me one on one to help me understand my case.  I was made to feel like family.
