when does the negotiating start? (Alabama

The rating has little to do with the restrictions, although they pretty much accomplish the same thing.

In Alabama, for a PPD (permanent partial disability) the maximum number of weeks for benefits is 300. That means that 25% of the 300 weeks would limit the benefits to 75 weeks. So whatever the 66 2/3% of the AWW has been (the original TTD) would be paid over the 75 weeks.

You can find more here:

As 1171 says, your attorney should schedule a hearing to negotiate a "cash buy out" of the weekly benefits. I promise you, though, any cash lump sum will be much less than the weekly $$ times the 75 weeks.
