What does 50% scheduled loss mean?

Author Subject: What does 50% scheduled loss mean?

I had my final IME and am listed with a 50% scheduled loss of my right arm.
I injured it at work in 1999, had surgery in 2000, but never healed properly and suffer with pain and tightness in right arm/shoulder. I am right handed so this has affected my lifestyle quite a bit. Can anyone tell me what to expect when I go to comp. court? I don't have an attorney and I haven't seen too many cases in your forum from NY. I also retired from my job in 2000 (not medical, as there was just too much red tape to go through and I couldn't afford no payments for months). Does anyone know what kind of a settlement I might receive if any? Has anyone else out there dealt with NY? I would appreciate any help or info. Thanks.

A 50% or greater rating in NY will result in a perm classification of the injury and a possible lifetime weekly benefit.

Thank you for the input. This is a first for me so I was curious to know what would possibly happen.
