20 Percent Rating
I saw my doctor yesterday and was released from his care. I ended up having 2 surgeries to repair my distal bicep tendon. He gave me a 20 percent rating for my elbow. I know that at 20 percent it turns into 90 weeks because the schedule for an elbow total loss is 450 weeks. So how do I find the number to multiply the 90 weeks with to know what my total of compensation should be? Also I heard that it would be paid in monthly payments. Does anyone know how that works? Thanks for any information on the matter.
Re: 20 Percent Rating
In most states, the rating weeks would be multiplied by the injured worker's weekly compensation rate. If you are not represented, you should get a free consultation from a local workers' compensation lawyer to make sure you are not missing anything.
