    Default 24% Disability for My 64 Year Old Father

    Hi all, my father and I have never had to deal with workers compensations or insurance issues. My father was injured at work and had to have shoulder surgery. His doctor said he has 24% permanent disability. My father has worked all his life and was not planning to retire at 66 y/o. He has been given on medical leave for almost six months now. Insurance wants to give him a settlement amount. What would be the average amount he should be looking at? Thank you for your help.

    That has zero to do with a settlement amount.
