My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: Nevada
On november 4th, 2005 i was injured when a ladder slid down a wall on me, and i landed on a sidewalk directly on my elbow. I received medical treatments immediately, and started receiving my comp.
It's been almost 3 years now and i've had 6 surgeries, and a staff infection along the way. I received a radial head replacement, as well as several screws in my ulna. I lost all of my cartiledge to the infection, and as the doctor puts it, "I basically have no elbow."
3 years later i am at maximum medical improvement. I have a flexion extension range of 18-115 degrees. I have almost 0 degrees of pronation supination. I can curl up to 5 pounds, and even that makes my elbow snap and crunch at times. I was a carpenter, and now i'm just trying to get an idea on what kind of settlement i should expect to receive.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
