Suzy, when a claim gets closed and you have permanent damage, the insurer will evaluate the damage of your foot. They will base the rating of disability on medical reports. They will figure out the % loss and convert it to degree loss. The money paid for each degree lost is based on your date of injury. That dollar amount is set by law. This is not called a "settlement" but an Award. If your insurance company paid time-loss to you, after you became medically stationary, they have the right to get the overpayment back. They can deduct it from the disability award. Hope this answers you questions.
