I received my permanent impairment rating report in the mail today from a left knee injury I sustained. I had surgery on the knee to repair the damage, but I have not missed any work due to the injury do to my boss letting me work from home.
The report states that I have an 11% lower extremity (4% whole person) impairment rating in accordance with the AMA Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment, 3rd Edition (Revised).
I started to read through the Colorado laws and got a little confused and was hoping for some clarification. I understand that since I am 38 years old I have a 1.44 adjustment number based on my age. So from what I could tell I would take my 4% rating multiply it by the 1.44 and then multiply that by 400 weeks. Then based on section 8-42-105 I would do something else but I'm not sure exactly what the 400 weeks or section 8-42-105 means.
I know that there could be other factors, but I'm just looking to see what should be considered fair on the Final Admission letter. To give the final piece to the puzzle my weekly gross salary is $2307.69.
Any help in showing me how to calculate this and what the number 'might' be would be greatly appreciated.
