    Default Where to Find a Permanent Disability Percentage Chart for Workers Comp

    I just went for my MMI last month, 20% Lubar Perm disability. Now comp wants an IME which is tomorrow. Does anyone have the link to the % chqrt? Not the one that determines pay times weeks, the one with body part, surgery/symptoms=% disabled.
    Thanks so much

    Check out Pgs. 14-15 in the blow link also check out the posted Section 31-308

    Sec. 31-308 provides a list (see page 15) of body parts with the total number of weeks of compensation provided by law for each
    For example, the master arm is scheduled for 208 weeks, so a “20% loss of use of the master arm” equals 20% of 208 weeks which equals 41.6 weeks of benefits. An employee eligible for a $200 per week benefit
    rate would receive 41.6 weekly payments of $200 for a total PPD benefit payment of $8,320.14
    The PPD weekly benefit rate is determined by the employee’s basic compensation rate at the time of the original injury or illness.

    Here's the section pertaining to PPD in Connecticut.
    Sec. 31-308
    Workers’ Compensation Act as amended to January 1, 2007
    Compensation for partial incapacity.

    Connecticut is currently using the 6th edition of the AMA Guidelines for evaluation of permanent impairment. If you really want one they are available for about $350.00 through the AMA web site.
