Workers’ Compensation – Permanent Partial Disability – Lump Sum Award – Diabetes Complications – Attendant Care Award – Reconsideration (access required)

Lewis v. N.C. Department of Correction Twenty years ago, plaintiff’s compensable post-traumatic stress disorder aggravated his diabetes, leading to permanent injury to multiple body parts and systems. Since (1) plaintiff’s condition has stabilized, (2) he has other sources of income, (3) he wishes to bring an end to the offset of his Social Security Disability benefits, (4) he needs help to pay off his mortgages and other debts, and (5) he recognizes that his longevity is “somewhat impaired,” the Industrial Commission finds that this is an unusual case and that it would be in plaintiff’s best interest for his permanent partial disability benefits to be paid in a lump sum.
