I am at MMI. I received my disability impairment rating and am confused about what is said. My injury was to my foot/ankle. Here is what I am wanting explained in plain English -
"The larger impairment should be awarded of 20% of the lower extremity and 10% whole person as the Range of Motion Impairment and the Diagnosis Based Impairments cannot be combined."
My understanding that a lower leg injury is a scheduled injury. What is this about the whole person? What is a rough idea for the formula that should be used to calculate my payments?
I am just asking for a basic explanation as to what was stated in the Impairment Rating that I can understand - in layman's terms.
As for the idea of the formula, a "guesstimate" is fine. I do not know how this whole process works.
