Your settlement is based on your disability rating and your salary. The higher your disability rating, the more weeks of salary you get as your settlement. In most states, a partially amputated finger is not worth more than 25 weeks of salary. Hire a local workers' comp lawyer. Go on www.martindale.com. Good luck and remember to press accept so that I may get credit.
