I was injured at work back in March and had Rotator cuff surgery in May. I came back to work under light duty in August and just had my last Dr's appt where I had reached MMI. Note, I can not put my hand behind my back, nor lift over 5lbs without it hurting. PT went like hell at first because I had developed frozen shoulder and still have a lot of strange popping going on that they call "Scar Tissue" breaking up. Everyone keeps telling me that I will be back to normal but it will take a long time. My issue is this, my Dr did the MMI test by basically "eyeballing" my ROM. When I asked what a typical MMI was she responded with 2-5% and that WC will compensate me based on that fact. She also released me back to work with no restrictions. My job requires me to lift a lot more than 5lbs,but I was only at 3lbs when I was done with PT, I cant tuck in my own shirt, and my wife helps me with my belt. I don't want to get an attorney but I don't want to be screwed over either, so I am curious if I am correct on my math formula and if the fact that I am over 40, dominant arm, and released with no restrictions will give any kind of multiplier? I have seen the formula as 450 weeks x MMI rating x amount your checks were while out of work($667.55). So lets say I had 4%, what should I be looking at and should I get an attorney if it doesn't match up? Thanks in advance!
