    Default 20 Percent Rating

    I saw my doctor yesterday and was released from his care. I ended up having 2 surgeries to repair my distal bicep tendon. He gave me a 20 percent rating for my elbow. I know that at 20 percent it turns into 90 weeks because the schedule for an elbow total loss is 450 weeks. So how do I find the number to multiply the 90 weeks with to know what my total of compensation should be? Also I heard that it would be paid in monthly payments. Does anyone know how that works? Thanks for any information on the matter.

    Default Re: 20 Percent Rating

    In most states, the rating weeks would be multiplied by the injured worker's weekly compensation rate. If you are not represented, you should get a free consultation from a local workers' compensation lawyer to make sure you are not missing anything.
    The North Carolina Court of Appeals has held that "In contested Workers' Compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity." Church v. Baxter Travenol Labs, Inc., and American Motorists Insurance Company, 104 N.C. App. 411, 416 (1991).
