My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: Kentucky.
I have had surgery on both wrists, last year,(2010). I was just informed by my companies Human Resouce Director that i was intitled to $11,000 for my 6% disability and
would recieve lifetime meical for anything that would involve my wrist or due to the carpeltunnel.
My question is this, I get paid in weekly amounts of around $26 , its about eight years of weekly payment. Should i sighn the paper and just do it this way or should i
drop the lifetime medical on my wrist and try for a lump sum?
Another question is this, should i ask for a retest on my wrist to see if the disability might be a higher percentage? which could mean more money.
I am still employed and work with no issues with my hands or wrist, I feel that the surgery was a success. Thank you for any information that you can give me.
