partial disability

n. the result of an injury which permanently reduces a person's ability to function, but still permits some working or other activity. In workmen's compensation cases an injured worker is often awarded a percentage rating of permanent partial disability, which will entitle him/her to a money settlement. The percentage payoff is often based on a physician's evaluation of what part of the person's normal functioning is gone.
