Ankle injury
#1
I have avascular necrosis of the ankle
The prognosis is very poor
And quite devastating. What approximate
Percentage can I expect from
Workers comp?

states that use impairment ratings base the ratings on the amount of functional recovery not on a diagnosis/prognosis.

It's a permanent injury and
My choice I ankle fusion or
Nothing so I'm not going
To do that unless I absolutely
Have to. I heard they base their
Settlement on a percentage of loss of
Use but I can't find what that percentage
Might be

Every state is different. What state is your claim in?

it depends on how much loss you have--it's not a flat amount for any loss.

Question your doctor before you do something you shouldn't. Meaning if you don't fuse the ankle, what are the chances of infection and loosing the ankle.
Caution yourself in what you about to do first.
