Can anyone help me to understand this? I have a permanent impairment to my spine, even after surgery. How do they calculate the benefits?

each state has different formula; some are very complex. you can contact your state work comp agency for information or visit their website.
generally they all result in a fixed number of weeks. there is a separate calculation for determining the weekly payment rate.
With out know the rating percentage is hard also. But as per your State, the back would have to be at 50% or better to collect 66 2/3 your scale pale up to 500 weeks of pay. You will not really be able to figure it out though. None of us can as each and every case is different, and the amounts are never the same.
