On behalf of Shardel Suber of The Bainbridge Firm, LLC posted in Workers’ Compensation Benefits on Wednesday, February 8, 2017.
One of the monetary benefits available to injured workers through Ohio’s workers’ compensation system is a benefit known as a Permanent Partial Disability (PPD). Unlike other benefits, which typically replace lost wages, PPD awards are most akin to a “damages” award. As a result of a specific work injury, a claimant may find that his or body does not quite function the way it did prior to the injury. This residual impairment is reflected in the PPD award.
