The amount of a workers’ compensation settlement may vary greatly depending on the exact case. If your injury is minor, the settlement may be limited to the employee’s lost wages and payment of the medical expenses related to the treatment of said injury. If the injury is severe, for instance a major back injury, and you have partial or total use of the body part(s) injured in the accident affected for the rest of your life, your settlement will be higher. In this case, the settlement will include lost wages, medical expenses, and some level of compensation for the injury to the body part. In a case where the employee suffers a partial or total loss of a body part, the treating doctor will assign a disability rating between 0% and 100% for each body part injured. The settlement for these type of major injuries can be six figures.
