Re: Severe Hardship Don't Know What to Do Now
Is there any kind of chart that TN has that you can try to figure out what they will pay out as a settlement?
Benefits for Permanent Partial Disability (PPD)
The percentage of worker's wage paid is 66 2/3. For weekly payments, the minimum is $114.75 and the maximum is $765, 100% of SAWW. For non-scheduled injuries, the maximum period of payments is 400 weeks, and the maximum amount payable is $306,000.
So, in your case with a 9% rating you would be entitled to 9% of 400 weeks or 36 weeks of PPD.
That's not right. Just because you're MMI, your medical should continue, it's the carriers discretion to pay PPD until your hearing.
i have been placed at mmi by the carrier Dr all the ttd benefits have stopped entirely. So as of now i have no income at all are even medical
At the hearing your PPD should be instated along with your medical.
