I recently had an IME and the doctor said my injury was a lot worse than my treating doctor thought. He said there were limited treatment options for my injury and I would lose a lot of motion with any surgery option. I called my case adjuster and had my treating doctor switched to the doctor that did my IME.
My question is when I do reach MMI will my (new) treating doctor perform the permanency evaluation?
Do they send me to another doctor to have this done?
Second questions- when it comes to calculating a settlement does anyone know how many weeks are used for a wrist injury in Connecticut?
