I have tried to read the info on this, but I seem to fail miserably at interpreting it.
So, I am wrapping up 1 shoulder (severed and torn tendons, right side) and getting ready to have the other done.
So, I have been told that my right will have approx 20% permanent loss and can expect about the same from the left. So that will equal 20% per shoulder, with another (up to) 50% loss in my middle 2 fingers mobility/use. I work on computers 100% of the time for my job and have for almost 20 years. So changing careers in perhaps not the best thing.
How in the world to get a rough estimate on the settlement for partial permant disability? I am 45 and (AFAIK) my job code is "120".
Is there some sort of online calculator that will give a rough estimate, or at least a chart that I can determine my total body % and look that the payoff here: http://www.workinjury.com/money-rates/2005-6.pdf
And what are the "weeks" they refer to? Based on my age and the expected 20more years of work, I should have 1040 more work weeks, but the chart about goes no where near that number.
Sorry for the newb questions, but the whole process seems to be written to confuse.
