    you convert the lower extremity impairment to whole body by use of a table or essentually multuplying by 0.4. That WPI (whole person impairment) then is the factor used with your wage data to arrive at a dollar figure to pay you - of which your atty gets the typical 1/3 rd.

    btw - vicodin is a terrible choice for chronic pain for two reasons;a) it only lasts about 2-3 hrs while the pain lasts all day and B) the acetominophen component will kill your kidneys in long term low dose use.

    Google for research on hypertension and acetominophne (tylenol) and tylenol and end stage renal failure. Why do you think all those strip mall dialysis centers have sprung up all over the country ? Cause Tylenol is "so safe"

    Effexor recent data also associated with hypertension and neurontin is very sedating and causes problems with short term memory - try Cymbalta or Lyrica instead.
