What is Disability?

by Dixon Law Office

Some of the legal terms encountered in personal injury cases can be confusing, unusual or misunderstood. In today's post, we discuss disability.

"Disability" is defined as "limitation in the ability to pursue an occupation because of a physical or mental impairment."  In other words, disability is the lack of an ability you used to have.

Disabilities can be temporary, lasting only a short time, or they can be permanent, lasting for someone's entire life.  They can be severe or minor.

For example, if someone was involved in a motorcycle accident and their leg was amputated, they have suffered a disability.  The loss of the leg has caused them to be unable to do many things and made many other things harder.  The law says the victim is entitled to compensation for that disability.

If you were the victim of medical malpractice and had to be hospitalized as a result, you suffered a disability.  Whether you were in the hospital for hours or months, that is disability and or your State's legislature says you are entitled to be compensated for that.
