You have submitted this as a personal injury question. 12% disability is generally a workers compensation term. Also the value depends just not on disability but also future medical care issues and rehab. So talk to a workers compensation lawyer or hire one to maximize your value.

The percentage amount of bodily impairment is adjusted based upon your age and occupation at the time of the injury, but you do not provide that information. There is no "average" percentage, the same flat percentage applies once the adjustments have been made. ?Contact your local WCAB to see if they have an information officer to help you contact the rating bureau so you can get a PD rating from them based upon the medical reports and what number of weeks of PD that works out to.

Almost every day we get a request for evaluation of a claim. We cannot respond to such a request, as there are simply too many elements to be considered. These include percentage of fault, age and health and background of the claimant, the nature of the injury, the treatment, the diagnosis, the prognosis, the cost of the treatment, and the outcome. Also to be taken into account in some cases are the amount and type of insurance coverage and the name of the insurance company. Most attorneys offer a free conference. We suggest that you talk to a few lawyers. Also, you should know that an independent study showed that claimants did better, even after fees, with a lawyer than without.
