In an Alabama workers’ compensation case, damages are calculated based on the type of injury the injured worker has suffered. Once the injured worker reaches maximum medical improvement, the authorized treating physician will determine the permanent physical impairment rating (PPI). The PPI is used to calculate the value of the claim. Values for scheduled member injuries are different from body as a whole type of injuries.
