Permanent Total Disability (PTD) is a legal term that describes permanent restrictions determined by your doctor that make it impossible to continue in your current job. You may also have restrictions that will not allow you to complete job duties or find gainful employment in a similar capacity.

At Balke & Williams, we fight on behalf of injured workers across McHenry County and the Chicago metro area. Insurance companies aggressively challenge PTD determinations made by a doctor and seek to limit these large lump-sum pay outs.

Our attorneys understand the burdens and stresses you face and will aggressively assert your rights to recover PTD. We have a track record of success with PTD claims and handle all aspect of your workers' compensation claim so you can focus on adjusting to a new reality.

Maximum Medical Improvement

Once a doctor determines that you are at "maximum medical improvement," the insurance company may not continue to pay your medical expenses or temporary total disability benefits. They may accuse you of faking your disability or exaggerating your injury. They may also accuse you of rejecting gainful employment or simply delay paying you the benefits that you are due.

Insurance companies will tend to neglect cases as long as possible to delay payment or the resolution of your claim. Our attorneys will take aggressive and strategic action for the efficient and just resolution of your claim.
