please help with permanent (SLU) award
#1
I just recieved a letter in the mail form workers comp stating my doctor rated me at 10% permanent loss of use in my right knee for a torn ACL with sugery done 01/20/11 to repair it.
My question is does anyone know what kid of money I am looking at being awarded? Im looking for a little help before I say yes or no and if i should check into another doctor.

each state has their own work comp system with different benefits.
that's why we request you post the state when asking for information
http://www.workerscompensation.com/forum...?tid=10146

ratings are not based on the type of treatment or type of injury but on how much function has been lost.
that cannot be second guessed on a message board.
if you doubt the rating get a second opinion.
