How much do I get for my knee surgery, herniated disc, broken ankle, carpal tunnel surgery, etc.?
Once you have reached Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI), your doctor will determine whether you have sustained a permanent partial disability (PPD). This is determined by assigning you a permanent partial disability rating based on the Minnesota workers’ compensation disability schedules. That percentage is then multiplied times a dollar value to determine the amount of your permanent partial disability benefit.
A payment for permanent partial disability does not constitute a “settlement” of your workers’ compensation case – there may be other additional benefits you are entitled to.
