My workers compensation claim was made in the State of Ohio:
I was injured in September of 2010. The allowed injury is for two herniated discs.
In December of 2011 I was awarded a Permanent Partial Disablility at 8% set at 16 weeks.
My average weekly wage is set at $727.24.
My attorney had me sign off on a check worth $4133.28 of which he kept 1/3. I was given a check for $2756.90.
16 weeks multiplied by 727.24 = 11,635.84
WC Maximum Wage Chart indicates the year 2010 maximum permanent/partial wage set at $423.
16 weeks multiplied by 423.00 = $6768.00
Besides the $2674.72, what else am I missing and don't understand? How did the bureau come up with this settlement?
What formula is used to calculate the PPD payout?
