Nevada ppd settlement - Mheath16 - 05-10-2017

Nevada Work Comp PPD Settlement
My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Nevada 16% ranking. I calculated my settlement based on the 6% guidelines and they came back using the.0006 instead of 6%. I have argued with my attorney all day ref the Nevada statue and basic math concept. Please help, what should I do. They work sheet they use and provided by DIR uses the .0006 x monthly wage x ranking percentage. They also calculate the years to 70 by a specified number for years and months not exact.

You probably need to find another atty that agrees with you and appeal.
When both your atty and the dir are against your interpretation you'll need strong evidence to work n an appeal.

"...to win" an appeal.

P.S.
this worksheet shows .006
http://dir.nv.gov/uploadedFiles/dirnvgov/content/WCS/D9a.pdf
are they using a different worksheet?

they also might be using a life expectancy calculation for the age determination value. your atty should know whether life expectancy is allowed.
