My husband had thumb fusion and carpal tunnel surgery of his left hand (he's left handed) and a second surgery for cubital tunnel of his left elbow. The doctor said he had 40% loss of use of his thumb. He was off of work for nine months, and has been back at work for several months. He finds that since his thumb is fused and cannot move, it gets in the way often. WC wants to settle and I'm wondering what a fair settlement would be. We do have an attorney but he wants us to take an offer that seems too low. We just want what is fair.
