    linkin, i also have tennis elbow, and ulnar nerve damage. i know you did'nt mention nerve part. i had surgery on both, they placed nerve in dif location and scraped down tendon. they also needed to remove muscle from my arm but it was'nt dead, it was just so they could place nerve in certain area. the dr removed about 2% of bone in area but it has not worked as of yet. i'm not at mmi "maximum medical improvement". so i don't know what my rating will be. is that # correct ,the 130 thous ? the reason i ask is because i don't know and my lawyer tells me nothing. let me know .

    Unless your atty negotiates a lump sum cash payment, you are unlikely to see that money all at once...

    PPD 'awards' are paid out bi-weekly the same as your TTD was paid...some states pay at the same amount of your TTD, some pay at a lessor rate...

    IF you are paid a lump sum all at once, the amount will be reduced to 'todays dollars'... a lower amount presuming you could deposit the money in an interest bearing account and wait for the full payment the same as the IC could do with the money...you always receive more by accepting the bi-weekly payments...'more' as in the full amount you are entitled to.

    Go here...http://www.lni.wa.gov/IPUB/242-104-000.pdfaround page 14 for information on PPD ratings/awards..and other information about WC in WA state.

    BTW... there is no law that requires the ER/IC to offer you a lump sum payment, or C&R to your claim...and careful consideration should be given to such a settlement where your future medical may be affected.
