Let me start by giving a little back story. I hurt my elbow about 18 months ago at work. Turned out to be tennis elbow. 2 cort shots some physical therpy and 13months later i get surgery. Doctor says i can go back to work full time on march 6. I have no lawyer will not get one it think. work comp has been great pay me on time have not had to fight for any benifits. i just was wondering if my injury is worth a settlement. I cannot straighten my arm completely and have lost some of my grip. I have looked at the work comp charts and see a arm is worth 253 weeks. How can i figure what % of those weeks my elbow is worth? Do the doctors just guess?
