back injury settlement
I have two torn disks, have been to 4 QME exams and all of the DR's agree....I am permanent and stationary.
THis has been going on for two years!
I am waiting for the final QME exam report before a settlement is negotiated. Could someone please give me a ballpark range of a settlement amount. I am 31, and made appx 30k/year prior to my injury.

Re: back injury settlement
Sometimes the California Workers Compensation process can be frustrating for everyone. Based upon your earnings, you will qualify for permanent disability at the maximum rate, but that rate will be determined by the percentage disability you have. 1-14% receives 140 per week. 15-24.75 is $160 per week, and 25-69.75 is 170 per week. The disability also determines the number of weeks. So until you have a permanent and stationary report that is ratable, your actual settlement is unknown.
