Back Injury Settlement
#6
it sounds like an advance payment of their estimate of your permanent disability as required by law.
whether there is more and how much depends on your rating. the greater the rating the longer benefits are paid.
there will be formal rating and calculation issued by the state's disability evaluation unit.
lump sum agreement that includes a buyout of future medical coverage has to be negotiated; it's not just your choice.

you should have been paid temporary disability for the whole time you were temporarily disabled-prior to being Permanent & stationary or Maximum Medical improvement. if they offered modified work and you refused, it'll be difficult to claim more disability payments --but talk to your atty about it.

here's where you can start finding out about california comp benefits and how they are calculated
for Permanent disability payments start with fact sheet D
http://www.dir.ca.gov/dwc/iwguides.html

you can also refer to chapter 7 of the guidebook
