My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: Indiana
I suffered a torn labrum last July.. I had my first surgery on Oct 30.. and second one on feb 24.. Im facing a possible third surgery... Im not responding to any PT and I had two shots of injections last month after a MRI shown a possible reacurrent tear... Im going to the DR next week followed up by my attorney the next day.. What I'm basicly asking is.. Im 26 and as of right now.. I can not lift a 3 pound dumbell up and down and to the side...If I chose not to have another surgery.. Is there a chance that I could be placed on permanent partial disability? I've already been told by the DR that returing to my job (lifting bags for Airline) is 100% out of the picture.. So, Im kinda looking towards the future that would include going back to college to finsh up my 4 year degree in flight school...But, with that said could I get a max 500 week settlement? So I could pay for schooling??
