Calculation of the award is a relatively simple formula:
1. percentage of loss multiplied by the total number of weeks
2. the number of weeks multiplied by the claimant's compensation rate
3. equals the total dollar amount of the benefit.
My question is how does the % determine the # of weeks and what is the claimants compensation rate, is that what I received for benefits while I was out of work? Just trying to get an understanding of all of this.
Thanks for the help.
In September I will be seeing Ortho again at which time he says he thinks he will be able to give a determination for the % of loss, he wants to xray my ankle and see what the difference is from 2/09 too now is after the infection and the RSD that keeps getting worse.
Just want to make sure I understand it before I see him in September.
Thanks again for the help, I am really confused on this right now.
