once you are permanent and stationary they will calculate your permanent disability and award you a fixed number of payments and open medical.
you can find out more about PD here (fact sheet D)
http://www.dir.ca.gov/dwc/iwguides.html

you should request permanent disability advance payments so they can pay part of your award and not wait for all the legal paperwork. the PD payments won't be enough to live on so you need to return to work. they'll give you a retraining voucher.
