need settlement % disablity chart - muttley - 01-07-2008
Im looking for a chart I was shown a long while back about the % disablitiy chart which gives the amount your given for your injuries/disabilities. I donot know the proper name of this chart but I recall it listed % of disability and the amount you would be owed.
I live in Maryland

each state has their own
for california: it's different for different dates of injury
you can try here
(pd ratings can be very confusing)

you need to post if your state uses the AMA 5th edition for permanent impairment. I can help a little if they use that book as it's sitting over there under the VCR.

Thanks for the info 1171 . The chart I saw basicly list more problems which im hoping to find . Im really not sure even how they would figure mine up and does it consider surgery ?
Heres basicly my injuries - Broken skull , brain injury w/ operation (memory did return just having minor problems currently) ,2 broken vertabra , broken upper arm w/ surgery , cracked pelvis , broken finger w/ surgery -most likely will never work 100% . Im guessing the brain injury is the one thats tuff to figure.
Also - if I can no longer drive a big truck because of my injuries does that somehow get considered or not?
