What is Workmans Comp Settlement for Permanent Disability?
by J (San Francisco, CA)
I hurt both of my knees, calf and back because of a faulty bus brake. I have been off work for a little over a year, and I was just given an opportunity of "light duty" the past 2 months.
I was unable to complete the light duty so I'm back home. I have seen a QME 2 times now and this last one was for the determination. I was wondering what is a typical settlement amount for a younger person who is permanently disabled?
