Permanent Impairment vs. Permanent Disability

Permanent Impairment in South Carolina Workers' Compensation Claims

When you have a permanently disability, you have access to different types of benefits than other people. There is a separate classification called permanent impairment which is frequently confused with permanent disability, and it is important to know the difference between the two.

A permanent impairment is an injury that will impact you for the rest of your life, but does not keep you from performing some type of work. In the process of determining the extent of your overall disability, the permanent impairment will be considered, but it is only one factor in making the determination.
