    R u using a lawyer? He can give u pretty exact figures. Also the rating will be based on workers comp wage benefits and not your previous working wages.

    Do u have any friends or other patients that were at doctors office that can recommend their lawyer. Ck the lawyers of the law firms who will give u a consult at no charge. Have u papers in order. U will find out what ur state allows for compensation.

    Workers Comp has a formula depending on the part of body involved, the rating and the number of weeks of work comp you can get.

    Let's say:

    100% disabled, rating is for leg which 200 weeks max X 66% of weekly workers compensation wages... = settlement $ amount
