    Come on, life's not that simple - Depending on how well you heal and if the employer will accommodate, you could be looking at nothing or up to five years of benefits.
    A lawyer would need time to answer those questions after talking to you and collecting the facts of your claim, how do you figure we can give an answer based on nothing?
    Have a free consult with a lawyer and find out where you stand.

    Quit with reposting the same question, you'll get the same answer every time.

    As a rule, they won't settle for more than five years of benefits, they'd just a soon pay you out weekly and hope you have an early death....so.
    Here's the chart - look up your impairment rating and relevant info, figure out your weekly benefit and how many weeks due.
    If it's less than five years and comes close to that figure it's fare, if not - take the weekly pay out until you exhaust the total amount if you can afford to do so.
