Do you know much about worker's comp settlements?

My husband has carpal tunnel in both hands, and was just approved for surgery. He had to get a lawyer since the adjuster was denying everything. So we were just wondering how long the settlements take and how much they can be?

Update:

Oh, we are in California

Update 2:

Megan, what kind of chart? Like can i look it up online or something?

    It generally is a year from the time that your husband finishes treating with his doctor. Although, if this is a denied accident, it could take longer. There should be a chart you can look to that will say around how much your husband will receive.

    What state are you in? I am asking because each state has its own rules for workers comp.
