You are certainly entitled to Worker's Comp. I just don't know why it's being suggested by "they" (whoever they are) that one year is some sort of magic number and for what purpose.

You will certainly be entitled to a permanent partial disability settlement when you have reached end of healing. You appear to have a "scheduled injury" so there won't be too much to debate when it comes time to sort that out.
