    Generally a bicep rupture in accordance with NYS impairment http://www.wcb.ny.gov/content/main/h...rmentGuide.pdf
    page 27point 7
    Rupture of the long head of the biceps muscle is equal to 10-15% loss of use of the arm. Rupture at distal point of insertion of the biceps is equal to 20% loss of use of the arm. Taking into consideration mobility and muscle weakness, the schedule can vary up to 33 1/3% loss of use of the arm depending on degree of impairment found.


    Go back to your doctor with Form C4.3 and ask him/her to do SLU evaluation
