    Default What Does Your Total Body Impairment Mean

    In 2008 i was working at a manufacturing plant when my right hand was amputated. To make a long story short
    Four years and twelve surgurys later the hand was replanted with almost no function and extreme chronic pain.
    my question is 58% impairment what does it mean, is it alot, can i get disability from WC. All the information i get from WC is that they want me to go back to work(i was fired from the orginal job)

    you may qualify for vocational rehabilitation.

    permanent disability calculations involve a number of variables and are a bit complex
    see the wyoming comp code here:

    yes returning to work and looking for work are required for payment of a disability award.
