What is partial impairment and how does it affect my case?

When someone is partially impaired, what it means is that some part of their body has suffered a permanent injury. And it’s what entitles them to a recovery of worker’s comp benefits for the permanent injury. Now, there’s several types of permanent injury. One of those types of permanent injury is a totally total permanent injury. With a total permanent injury, that means you can’t return to your job at all, usually. But with a partial permanent impairment what that means is that some part of your body is not the same as it was before the injury happened. And under our law in South Carolina, you’re entitled to recover for that injury to you and it’s effect on you for the rest of your life.
