    Default What Settlement To Expect With a 13% Whole Body Impairment Rating

    Hello,
    What can I expect from my employers insurance company? My doctor issued a 13% whole body impairment rating. Doesnt sound like much for a back injury.
    My permanent restrictions are 10lbs lift, limited twisting and bending
    I am a 34 years old and live in the state of Indiana.
    Thank you,
    nopaybob

    nopaybob, In part it will depend on WHEN you were injured. I cut and pasted the following information from Indiana state WC web site and gave the the web pointer to follow up with. If you are unrepresented and are at the settlement phase you would be well advised to seek legal council before entering into a final settlement. There are many things to consider besides just the % of PPD. Future meds is just one of them.

    Take Care,
