I'm lost in the process of my case, I was injured on no fault motor vehicle accident while working. Injured my ankle which does require surgery, maybe two different surgeries. I was sent to two different WC doctors and both agreed that my only solution is surgery.
My surgery should be taking place next two weeks I hope, and it is going to be a long recovery ( 4 to 6 months).
It is clear to me that I will be receiving weekly compensation 70% of my gross income minus taxes of course.
What is not clear to me is the following:
Since I was injured at no fault motor vehicle accident what is the best way to approach this case:
Am I entitled for compensation for pain and suffering from the other party ? and
How does it works with WC since both doctors told me that at best my leg(ankle) will be recovered 80%, so I'm looking at %20 disability of my ankle.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thank you all.
