# Examples of Simple Multiple Injury Calculations

For these examples, we assumed the injury took place in January 2010 and the employee is entitled to the maximum rate of \$282.00. The PPD rate is either the maximum rate for year of injury or employee’s TTD rate, whichever is lower.

(view Maximum Weekly PPD Rates for other dates of injury)

## PPD rating by doctor: 10% to the right knee, 2% to the left wrist:

10% X 425 weeks (per schedule) = 42.5 weeks (knee)

2% X 400 weeks (per schedule) = 8 weeks (wrist)

plus 20% of 8 weeks (the equal or lesser injury) = 1.6 weeks

42.5 wks (knee) + 8 wks (wrist) + 1.6 (multiple) = 52.1 weeks X \$282.00=\$14,692.20

## PPD rating by doctor: 20% to the right shoulder, 20% to the left shoulder, 5% to the right knee:

20% X 500 weeks (per schedule) =100 weeks (right shoulder)

20% X 500 weeks (per schedule) =100 weeks (left shoulder)

5% X 425 weeks (per schedule) = 21.25 weeks (right knee)

plus 20% of 21.25 weeks (the equal or lesser injury)=4.25 weeks

PLUS 20% of 100 weeks (second equal or lesser injury—remember to only drop the disability that resulted in the highest number of weeks and keep the rest to comply with ss. 102.53)=20 weeks

100 wks (rt shoulder) + 100 wks (lt shoulder) + 21.25 wks (knee) + 4.25 wks (multiple) + 20 wks (multiple) = 245.5 weeks X \$282.00=\$69,231.00
