He never received an offer for a settlement. in 2010 when he was finally released with MMI. We did not know at that time he had a rating. After reviewing some of his old medical records this past month (5/2014), I discovered the information about this rating and contacted the workers comp insurance company for his employer. They claim they are gathering his wage information from that time period, but I have not heard back. .What are his rights to the money and how much can he expect to receive? How long should we expect this to take? Will he receive it in one lump sum? He earns about 17 per hour (680/week plus an average of 5 hours OT per week). Is there a minimum rating on a body part in order to receive a settlement (in particular, the hand or wrist)?
