    Margie, if you want "help and advice" to steer you in the right direction, then get a free consultation from an expert- a workers' comp lawyer. We all give free consultations.
    The North Carolina Court of Appeals has held that "In contested Workers' Compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity." Church v. Baxter Travenol Labs, Inc., and American Motorists Insurance Company, 104 N.C. App. 411, 416 (1991).

    I agree, the problem is - lawyers won't give a quick answer to a simple question on the phone.
    Something as simple as a scheduled loss can be looked up on your states worker comp website, sometimes people don't want to go through the hassles of giving the particulars, their personal info, scheduling and keeping an appointment over a basic question.

    Hey I saw your thread and wanted to get more info about how your workers comp and settlement went. My husband recently had a similar experience just like yours on Feb 06. We could use a lot of help and advice....
    Below is the link to look up scheduled injuries in Illinois.
    Look up the particular finger and the amount of weeks assigned - if it's a partial loss of a finger, multiply the percentage of loss by that figure.

    The PPD body part schedule is on Pg.30
