# Examples of Simple PPD Calculations

For these examples, we assumed the injury took place in January 2010 and the employee was 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. (Maximum Weekly PPD Rates for other dates of injury)

## PPD rating by doctor: 10% to the right knee:

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

Multiply 42.5 weeks by PPD rate

Therefore:

42.5 weeks X \$282.00 =\$11,985.00*

## PPD rating by doctor: 25% loss of use to distal joint of left little finger:

25% X 6 weeks (per schedule) =1.5 weeks

Multiply 1.5 weeks by PPD rate

1.5 weeks X \$282.00 = \$423.00

## PPD rating by doctor: 2% loss of use to left wrist:

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

Multiply 8 weeks by PPD rate

8 weeks X \$282.00 = \$2256.00

## PPD rating by the doctor: 5% to the body as a whole

5% multiplied by 1000 weeks (for nonscheduled injury) = 50 weeks

Multiply 50 weeks by PPD rate

50 multiplied by \$282.00=\$14,100.00*

*PPD is to be paid at a rate of \$1222.00 a month until sum of it has been paid.
