Is there a formula to find out a ball park settlement for a full thickness rotator cuff tear? My job consists of grabbing, pulling, pushing, lifting etc..... I also tourney bass fish and white tail archery hunt. I'm sure my arm won't be the same. What can I expect? P.S. I make about $45000.00 year



Your attorney basically can ask for anything, but what you will receive is based on a lot of factors, i.e., percentage of disability, future effect on job performance, willingness for company to negotiate, "balls" of your attorney, State/Federal caps on awards, if applicable, etc. The person to ask would be your workers' comp. attorney. It would also be advisable not to "close" this case in the event that something happens in the future. You can ask for a partial settlement and leaving the case "open."
