    Default Reconstructive Knee Surgery

    I hurt my knee back in January and just had surgery to replace my ACL and do some other meniscus repair. I was wondering if anyone has ever had ACL replacement, how much their WC settlement was. I had a friend who had his knee scoped by an OrthoSurgeon which seems to be quite popular in the construction industry, and he was paid $4600.00 besides his weekly benefit. I thought that since mine required full ACL replacement, it should probably be more than that. Has anyone ever recieved a settlement for this type of surgery?

    settlements are not based on what type of surgery you have.
    It's how well you recover from the injury. Full recoveries get little or nothing; those with very poor recovery get more.
