My husband had been out of work for 15 months with a shoulder injury. The first doctor that done his surgery said he would be out of work for 6 weeks. That was before he screwed it up. The second surgeon fixed it (as much as he could) and was released with a 15% at the end of March. My question is this, I do not understand the rating process of when you settle the claim so could someone help me out with this? Do they take into account the amount of time he has been out of work and the fact that it is his dominent arm? He also has a 30% rating on his left shoulder from the military. Does that come into play as well?
Any help would be appreciated!!! Thanks.
