Instructions for Whole Body Injury Computation

  • Enter date of accident (e.g., 010103); required.
  • Enter Docket Number (6 or 7 digits) or one zero; required. Entering the Docket Number provides a way to identify to which claim file a calculation belongs if the calculation is printed out.
  • (a) Enter claimant's average weekly wage or a wage high enough for the maximum benefit applicable if no wage is available. This should also include any changes in average weekly wage.

  • (d) Enter the percentage of disability as a whole number with no decimal unless the amount includes a half percentage.
