    Depends on the body parts and percentage of loss.

    That's incorrect. A scheduled loss is like if you amputate a finger or lose an eye.
    You're talking about an unscheduled injury, you'll be paid according to your loss of earning capacity. (Impairment Rating)

    There are two kinds of permanent impairments, scheduled and unscheduled. Both types are paid on a monthly basis.
    A scheduled injury is to a specific body part and the Arizona Workers’ Compensation Law sets out a schedule indicating the amounts to be paid for these impairments. There is also compensation payable for visible facial scarring and loss of permanent teeth.

    An unscheduled injury is the result of a general impairment, a combination of impairments to different body parts injured in one incident, or a history of other permanent impairments. In these cases, the ICA determines what amount of compensation the injured worker is entitled to based on loss of earning capacity.
    http://www.ica.state.az.us/claims/Cl...mpairment.aspx


    Here's the schedule of how they pay.
    The most you can get is 312 weeks, divide your Impairment Rating into that and you should be close.

    Yes.

    UNSCHEDULED INJURIES
    If your permanent injury does not fall into the categories listed in the schedule (scheduled injuries), it is
    classified as an unscheduled general disability. Examples of these types of injuries include occupational
    diseases and injuries to the hip, shoulder, or back or a combination of impairments or a history of prior
    impairment(s). With this type of injury, the ICA determines how much compensation, if any you will receive.
    This decision is based on the effect the injury has on your ability to returnto work and the wages you are able
    to earn compared to your average monthly wage on the date of your injury. Many factors are taken into
    consideration, such as age, education, previous occupations, physical limitations, and wages earned after the injury.
    You will receive a questionnaire from the ICA requesting this information.
    The ICA will calculate your unscheduled permanent partial compensation at 55% of the difference between
    your average monthly wage and the amount they estimate you will be able to earn (reduced earning capacity)
    given your injury or at 662/3% if you are determined to be totally disabled.

    Neither are on the schedule, you would have two unscheduled injuries, they would combine the total of the two ratings.
