2 years ago I broke my ankle at work, tore it up pretty bad. I have had 4 surgeries already and will need a complete fusion within the next 5 to 10 years (per Dr) as my ankle is deteriorating. I have been sent in for a FCE which I failed badly( but I can sit!!)
Now I am trying to understand what my company is talking about. I will never be allowed to return to my current job'
The Dr said that my ankle is only 30%,
So my question is this. would I be able to get a final settlement that will keep me afloat until I find a job I can do? I have "experts" from work telling me I will get so much for the 30% plus additional for each surgery plus they will have to pay me for schooling in a field I can do with the bum leg. Is this true? Can anyone else who has been in this situation point me in the right direction? I have looked at the WI website for Workers comp but it might just as well as been written in Chinese as I could not understand anything on it.
Thank you for any help and insight!
