Re: on Ohio Bwc Perminate Partial Disability
Where did you get 400 weeks from, it's 200 - this is why you need to post the source for the info you're posting.
Take her Disability Rating which is 11% you then times by 400
which would be 44 then you times that by the average weekly wage which is 1151 , Im coming up with $50644.
From what I see, it's the percentage of disability, which is 11 x 200 weeks (not 400) which would be 22 weeks x sixty-six and two-thirds per cent of the employee's average weekly (not the entire AWW)
4123.57 Partial disability compensation.
(A) The district hearing officer, upon the application, shall determine the percentage of the employee's permanent disability, except as is subject to division (B) of this section, based upon that condition of the employee resulting from the injury or occupational disease and causing permanent impairment evidenced by medical or clinical findings reasonably demonstrable. The employee shall receive sixty-six and two-thirds per cent of the employee's average weekly wage, but not more than a maximum of thirty-three and one-third per cent of the statewide average weekly wage as defined in division (C) of section 4123.62 of the Revised Code, per week regardless of the average weekly wage, for the number of weeks which equals the percentage of two hundred weeks.
DI 52120.195 Ohio Workers’ Compensation (WC)
4. Permanent Partial (PP), Scheduled Loss (SL), Percentage of Permanent Partial (%PP)
PP benefits are awarded as a Scheduled Loss Compensation (SL) or Percentage of Permanent Partial Disability (%PP).
SL payments are calculated as 2/3 of the individual’s wage and subject to the regular State maximum that cannot exceed 100 percent of the State Average Weekly Wage (SAWW).
%PP is calculated as 2/3 or the individual’s wage, but cannot exceed 1/3 of the SAWW. The maximum duration of payment is 200 weeks. The injured individual is typically granted an award as a percentage of the 200 weeks.
An injured individual is awarded $200 per month at a rate of 40 percent. They will receive $200 per month for 80 weeks (40 percent * 200 weeks = 80 weeks).
