An Impairment Rating – Can I get my Own?

In Idaho, folks who are hurt on the job often get the medical care they need and return to work successfully. However, there are occasions when injured workers do not fully recover and continue to suffer from injuries. Those workers may qualify for a permanent partial impairment rating. Generally, workers compensation insurance carriers in Idaho will seek the opinion of a doctor hired specifically by the insurance company to evaluate the worker. However, it is not unusual for the insurance doctor to find that a worker has a low impairment rating, no impairment rating, or even an impairment rating that the doctor says is due to “pre-existing” conditions. An injured worker can go to his treating doctor or hire an expert doctor of his own to determine if an impairment rating is warranted. If you have been injured on the job in Idaho and are still suffering from your injuries, email or call Caldwell Law Group, PLLC, now to determine if additional evaluations or investigation of your workers compensation claim is warranted.
