Partial Disability

Compassionate Workplace Injury Attorneys in the New York Metro area

At Severance, Burko, Spalter, Masone & Laurette PC we fight for your disability benefits

The Workers’ Compensation Law recognizes two types of benefits:

  • Total Disability – This occurs when a worker cannot earn any wages for any type of work.
  • Partial Disability – This occurs when a worker has lost some ability to earn wages but is still able to perform some job functions, such as light-duty tasks. If you have a partial disability, or if the Judge finds a partial disability, you must start looking for work (insert link to the looking for work page) within your restrictions.

At Severance, Burko, Spalter, Masone & Laurette PC, we handle all types of disability claims, helping clients obtain the benefits they are entitled to under law.

Our law firm provides you with over 75 years of disability legal experience

If you are deemed partially disabled you must look for work and accept employment you are capable of performing within your restrictions. Workers’ Compensation may pay a percentage of lost wages based on the level of your partial disability. If you obtain employment at a lesser rate of pay than before the accident, you might qualify for reduced earnings benefits if the disability is the reason for the reduction in earnings. It crucial to have an attorney inform you of your rights and options and advise you while making key decisions regarding your disability.
