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
I am looking for similar information, for California...thanks for bringing it up!
You both might check the top of this forum's page where it lists state info and maybe find what you are looking for, good luck, halftrak
no matter where you're at there you are
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.
Great Question Muttley!
got a link for Michigan?
Injured worker, & tired of it all! I'm too old for games!!
A careless word may kindle strife, a cruel word may wreck a life, a timely word may level stress, and a loving word may heal and bless!
michigan uses wage loss not impairment.

WHAT DOES NEW YORK USE???

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?
