But you should get some advice as to whether the schedule award is your best option. Depending on your situation, you may be better off getting disability payments and having your medical expenses taken care of

Generally your income benefits are two thirds of your average weekly wage at the time of your disability. If you are negotiating a settlement for total disability the amount would be based on your average weekly wage multiplied by the number of weeks you would be expected to work until your retirement. You should designate or set aside part of that money for medical treatment and care.

The potential value of a workers' compensation injury in Tennessee is based upon nurmerous factors. Presuming that the employer/insurance carrier accepted the injury as compensable, the impairment rating provided by the treating doctor (or maybe from an IME doctor), your compensation rate (a percentage of your average weekly wage) and whether or not you can return to work for your pre-injury wages are all part of the calculations. It is always worth discussing with an attorney, as you do not want to leave money on the table.
