is there any formula to calculate workers compensation settlement in California?
back wage/medical/pain and suffering?
A settlement of workers compensation is based upon a rating of your permanent disability, which is a rating from 1 percent to 100 percent ( a rough estimate is $1,000 for each percent) plus the estimated costs of future medical treatment, and any temporary disability payments which have not been previously paid. No $ for pain and suffering. It’s very complex, and I would recommend you at least get a consultation with a workers compensation attorney before you try this in your own, Good Luck.
Mr. Bader gave you a nice answer. There is no simple answer and no single formula. And no pain & suffering.
As the attorneys above stated, it is very complicated to determine what an injured workers' permanent disability is. You would be wise to consult with an attorney in your area.
