I'm 11 days away from my final evaluation (The 27th of this Month), at which point I will have reached maximum medical improvement, and he will assign me me Medical Impairment Rating.
I noticed when I rotate my right arm to the left or right as in turn a door know, i hear a clicking and grinding noise in the elbow, which is very painful.
i still can't lift more than about 10 pounds, and my arm constantly throbs.
anything I can do or should say to the doctor?
Also I understand once MMI had been reached and a disability rating is assigned, my work comp checks cut off. How long does it take to get a work comp settlement usually, and how do I pay the bills between the time I am assigned my disability rating and the time I get my settlement?
I don't want to lose my car or be delinquent on anything....just wondering what I can do?
