    you need to document the fact there are no jobs by searching first --you can't assume it.

    learning how to find a job is not a skill eveyone has; it has to be learned and practiced.

    Do you have a competent work comp lawyer helping you? If not it is time for you to be looking for one. Forget the rating, forget MMI, do a diligent job search and document the heck out of it. Look for any job that you reasonably think you would be qualified for, and don't worry if it is outside your restrictions. That is sort of the point of the search--you show that any jobs for which you are qualified are not available to you due to your restrictions.

    Start interviewing lawyers. You will need one to get the best deal at this point.
