On the job accident in MS!!! Looking for input???
On 06/02/2008 I was at a particular job site. We were scheduled to place dirt due to drainage reasons. While visiting this job site to make sure things were going well I approached the dozer operator to inquire as to how progress was going. While talking with dozer operator a truck load of dirt was pulling in. Apparently the operator was excited because before I was able to dismount the dozerthe operator had fired it up and started a forward motion which scared the crap out of me. I jumped from the dozer and landed on the right side of my body(as if laying in the bed) before I was able to recover the dozer started backing up and I realized that I could not move. I looked down at my feet and noticed the dozer was on them and I was unable to move. I figured the dozer would roll of of them and then I could get away. Before I knew what was happening the operator adjusted in reverse and was traveling up the left side of my body. I can recall every little thing that happened as if it happened a few minutes ago.
To make a long story short I received a crushed pelvis, severe nerve damage(inner thigh of left leg)and am suffering from incontinence and sexual dysfunction.
I have done everthing that was asked of me by doctors and physical therapists. I have had an FCE and have received a 15% whole body impaiment. I have reached MMI from the main doctor(orthopedic surgeon)
he concurs with the FCE and states that I have 15% whole body impairment not counting the incontinence and sexual dysfunction. I am wondering if anybody can shed some light on this 15% whole body impairment and how will it relate to a disability rating.
the higher the impairment rating the higher the disability rating given by the state. those with larger disability rating will get permanent disability payments for a longer time.
a worker with a 25% rating will be paid disability longer the someone with a 10% rating.
you can find out more here
ratings have nothing to do with how the accident happened or who's "fault" it was.

Holy Crap Bulldozer! What a horrifying experience!!

My question is...do you have a lawyer? If not...get one! 15% seems like a very low rating to me with all your lasting injuries. Get a certified WC lawyer and A GOOD ONE at that!

Also, have you been checked out for PTSD....as you seem to be re-living the incident, which can really raise havoc with one's mind!

I wish you much luck! LillySmile
Injured worker, & tired of it all! I'm too old for games!!

A careless word may kindle strife, a cruel word may wreck a life, a timely word may level stress, and a loving word may heal and bless!
