if you cannot go back to your original occupation you should look into vocational rehabilitation:

settlements are not based on the number of pounds lifted; you need a rating to determine permanent partial benefits.

I must be just confused, all i see is for permanent disability is you get paid for couple weeks and not a settlement and I dont understand the percentage.

the percentage is given by the doctor.
what do you mean by a "settlement"?
do you want to buyout all your future benefits and close your case?

sounds like you don't really know what a settlement is or what you are looking for.
you might be better off contacting an atty who can take over closing out your claim.
to find a lawyer you can contact your state bar or there are a number of web sites like lawyers.com or https://www.wilg.org/index.cfm?pg=publicdirectory
