Phoenix Permanent Disability Lawyers

Prescott Permanent and Partial Disability Workers' Comp Attorneys

Our Arizona lawyers understand the many ways workers can get injured on the job. We also understand the complex process of pursuing permanent total disability (PTD) and permanent partial disability (PPD). Our PTD lawyers dedicate substantial time, energy and resources to guiding individuals who have been hurt on the job through the workers' compensation benefits process. We provide a beacon of light to individuals injured on the job and in need of disability benefits.

At Fendon Law Firm, P.C., our Phoenix Social Security Disability attorneys have a wealth of legal knowledge. Our founding partner, Don Fendon, was one of the first Arizona lawyers to be certified as a specialist in workers' compensation law by the state board of legal specialization. He has been handling complex cases since 1972, including denied claims and reopened claims.

Scheduled and Unscheduled Disability

Our Prescott PPD legal team understands Arizona's complicated disability scheduling system. Your permanent impairment or disability must be documented by a physician according to American Medical Association disability rating guidelines. Within the statute there are many scheduled disabilities. Scheduled disabilities pay you a specific amount of compensation according to a schedule based on the amount of impairment. Scheduled disabilities can include, but are not limited to, injuries to your:

  • Knees
  • Hands
  • Arms
  • Eyes
  • Feet

Unscheduled disabilities are more complex, as they are not listed on a scheduled rate of compensation. To qualify for unscheduled disability, you must have an impairment rating and work restrictions. Unscheduled disabilities can include, but are not limited to, injuries involving your:

  • Shoulders
  • Neck
  • Back
  • Head

Experienced Disability Lawyers

At Fendon Law Firm, P.C., in Flagstaff, we have extensive experience helping clients who were injured on the job through the permanent disability process. We understand how to convert scheduled impairments to an unscheduled impairment. We also know how to raise the amount of your scheduled benefits. We may be able to prove that you are unable to return to your exact job, which can help you receive a higher rate of benefits.

As seasoned workers' compensation professionals, we also understand the difference between seeing doctors referred by insurance carriers and neutral medical professionals who may objectively rate your impairment.
