Buckeye, AZ asked in Workers' Compensation for Arizona

Q: How do I verify the C&R payout? I received 32% disability rating and the report states I require surgery. $37,500 low?

I worked for 28 years as a police officer in the City of Carlsbad, CA. I hurt my back, rated out at 32%, 0% apportionment. I hate the workers comp system. I advised I wanted a C&R. The final doctors report states I require surgery to my C column (fusion probably), life long pain management and medical care. City states tables used equate to $37,500 pay out. This doesn't seem to even cover a surgery? I relocated to Buckeye AZ.

A: We do not accept non-Arizona workers' compensation cases. You will need to contact an attorney in California
