    NRS 616C.490 Permanent partial disability: Compensation.

    7. Each 1 percent of impairment of the whole person must be compensated by a monthly payment:
    (d) Of 0.6 percent of the claimant’s average monthly wage for injuries sustained on or after January 1, 2000.

    Compensation must commence on the date of the injury or the day following the termination of temporary disability compensation, if any, whichever is later, and must continue on a monthly basis for 5 years or until the claimant is 70 years of age, whichever is later.
    You'll not like this, but the way that reads is....0.6 x 10 x your weekly rate.
    Compensation must commence on the date of the injury or the day following the termination of temporary disability compensation, if any, whichever is later, and must continue on a monthly basis for 5 years or until the claimant is 70 years of age, whichever is later.
    Looks like you have about 44 years of PPD indemnity payments.
    IF your weekly rate is the full 66.66% of your weekly wage, (subject to the max rates on your DOI) that new rate would be about $41.18/month. (2400 x 66.66% x 0.6% = 9.50 x 4.333 = $41.18) If you take the 41.48 x 12 =497.76 x 44 the indemnity is worth about $22K. They can pay this yearly as its less than $100/mo.

    You can request the indemnity in a lump sum, could be more money depending on the calculations. NRS 616C.495 Permanent partial disability: Payments in lump sum.

    All claims are unique, there may be additional benefits available to you. There really isn't any way someone on a message board could actually guess to a real figure. Too many variables in any claim.
    Consultation with a WC attorney would be your best bet.
    Fortunately, NV is a state that provides legal assistance to IW. Contact the WC commission office.
