    Default Two injuries from one on-the-job accident

    my wife is a nurse and incurred 2 injuries from 1 accident. She has had one surgery and about to have another. These are neck and shoulder injuries....both "body as a whole injuries". My question, will the both be viewed as one in a settlement or actually viewed a 2 didderent and separate injuries. We have been somewhat lucky so far, but things with workmans comp ins co seems to get tougher by the day.

    Thanks

    Multiple body parts are often involved in a single injury. The different areas of the body are taken into consideration after recovery when rating any limitations.

    I was injuried 2 times on my left arm and 1 time on my right shoulder. My left arm is concidered 1 case and my right shoulder is concidered 1 case. I don't know how well your wife has been treated, but my doctor and therapist are fantastic. However, my WC specialist is a monster. It has gotten so bad with him, that my attorney advised the 2 of us not to talk to each other. And the state has stepped in to oversee the cases. I am now in the settlement sections of my cases and it is an uphill battle to agree with this man on arrangements for my future. I hope this is not what occurs for your wife or anyone else for that matter. Good Luck.

    By law settlement should be rendered per each body part.
