    Default Nevada PPD Settlement Calculation

    My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Nevada 16% ranking. I calculated my settlement based on the 6% guidelines and they came back using the.0006 instead of 6%. I have argued with my attorney all day ref the Nevada statue and basic math concept. Please help, what should I do. They work sheet they use and provided by DIR uses the .0006 x monthly wage x ranking percentage. They also calculate the years to 70 by a specified number for years and months not exact.

    You need to post the statute you're referencing.
    Your attorney knows the correct rates for your state, if there was an error, I'm positive he would correct it.
    Post this work sheet or statute so we can see what you're talking about.

    I've seen a lot of post on here with the same issue. My attorney doesn't seem to see a diff. But monthly wage x .06 or .0006 makes a big difference.

    It says Use .006 for injuries sustained on or after 1/1/00. that's a little different than .06
    I don't think there's a .0006 posted anywhere in the statutes, are you sure you're not adding another zero?
    If there was a mistake, the attorney would jump on it - I'm sure you're fine.

    The statue says Of 0.6 percent of the claimant’s average monthly. The form and math they use is .006 for injuries sustained on or after 1/1/00. The difference in say 2000 x 0.6 per statue is 1200. 2000 x 0.006 is 12. My attorney is saying that's the formula, per the d9a form

    If your attorney says it - it's true.
    They have weird ways of figuring this stuff, it get's complicated.
    I've learned long ago - don't rely on information on the internet, it's for general use only and isn't always updated or accurate.

    I still don't see 0.6 anywhere in the above.
    It says:
    Installment Calculation
    **.005
    **.006 Last TTD,
    and
    Use .006 for injuries sustained on or after 1/1/00.
