DOI 11/04

See if I got this right.

PD payments of 200.00 a week equals 30.00 a week increase, times 104 weeks is 3120.00

Since they didn't pay this back in when they paid me the 56% lower extremities, do they now owe a 10% penalty?

maybe.
i don't know anything about your rate or rating or weeks( I don't think there is any rating for a 2004 injury that results in 104 weeks).
do you have a formal PD award or is your rating still not finalized?
they also have to withhold a reasonable amount for atty fee.
I also believe there is a time frame to find out about modified work before the increase is due--maybe 60 days.

No report saying PD before 1/1/05 therefore they are rating me for 05 injuries.

They did iisue check about a year ago, to cover the 56% rating, have been going back and forth from dqme to pqme every since, still not resolved, they just asked for courts assistance on how to proceed, which I say is dueling qme's, and another panel will need to be requested. both the dqme and the pqme said in that they could not rate upper extremities, therefore the da is seeking court help to proceed.

So no. everything is not resolved as far as final pd rating.

PD payments ended years ago.

Attorney was paid from the 56% rating, does he still get more?

They told me last month that they have no job for me, and employee several hundred employees and they do owe the 15%.

I was just wondering if it applied to TD payments or rating. i.e. 56%

Forgive me, sometimes I'm a little slow on the uptake.

I know for td it's 104 weeks, is the pd based on the 56% rating?

I'm not sure what 56% converts to, as far as monetary.

But let just say it's 50.000. The 15% increase is from the 56.000?

If so, that would make it 7500.00.

Is that right.

yes. the duration of permanent disability payments are proportional to the extent of the disability as measured by the rating (the higher the rating the greater number of weeks will be paid).
your weekly PD rate is increased by 15% for however many weeks your rating calculates to.
the number of weeks calculation changes depending on the date of injury.
if they have already paid you for your PD then you should know how many weeks and your weekly rate(?).

a 56% disability rating on a 2005 DOI should be paid for 319.25 weeks.
the minimum PD rate for those injuries is $105/wk and the Maximum is $220/wk and 2/3 of the Average Weekly Earnings for those in between.
the carrier has 60 days before the 15% increase for no modified work starts accruing.

a PD payment calculation can be complex.
you can find out more for older injury dates from the tables book on the GetMedlegal website

are you sure you don't want another atty?

That helped ALOT Thanks man.

I've had several att. they all suck. Everyone has to follow the same rule book, that's why we can rep our selves. Not like civil/criminal.

You know how we went over the psych issue? I'm not eligible du too the 6 month rule.

But, I have a Gaf score from an rsd specialist from san Francisco, that I was sent to back in 2007, can I use the GAF score?

it only applies to psyche impairment so it won't be combined with your other ratings.
as I posted previously; you maybe given impairment ratings for psyche conditions but legally they won't be used for PD benefits.
