What does a Findings and Award for Unscheduled Permanent Partial Disability mean? Other than being a summary of your work injury, this is a very important document. Worker’s comp. may pay you if you have permanent lost wages due to your injury. This document is what the Industrial Commission has determined about your permanent lost wages. You do not have to agree.

You can request a hearing. It is very, very important to have an experienced worker’s compensation lawyer look at this on your behalf. It is probable that the insurance company hired an expert who submitted a recommendation to the Industrial Commission. Did you have an expert on your side?
