If I receive a high impairment (PPI) rating from the doctor, will I qualify for Permanent Total Disability?



It depends.

Impairment and disability are different terms. Impairment refers to loss of physical function. Disability refers to inability to work. Your impairment rating is just one factor to consider in determining if you are permanently and totally disabled.

Again, permanent total disability (PTD) is based on your ability to perform reasonable kinds of work within today’s workforce.
