The average monthly wage is usually calculated on your earnings during the 30 days before your injury. there is a maximum weekly amount that varies with your injury date.

there are additional disability payments if you are left with some permanent disability. the duration of the payments is based on the extent of the disability and is measured by an impairment rating given by a physician. this is done when the doctor decides you have reached Maximum Medical Improvement.
payments are not based on surgeries or how much "suffering" you've had.
100% permanent disability is limited only to those who can never work at any job; most permanent disability is only partially disabling. all the disability determinations have to be supported by medical evidence and conform to the rating guidelines.

you can find out more about Arizona's work comp benefits from their website:
