    Default Impairment Rating for Paraplegia

    Does anyone know how to determine a impairment rating for paraplegia? Is it as straight forward as the loss of a limb?

    I would expect it to be 100% of each affected limb. But are you sure you need an impairment rating? That will depend on your state's law. In my state, paraplegia would be automatic permanent total disability.
    The North Carolina Court of Appeals has held that "In contested Workers' Compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity." Church v. Baxter Travenol Labs, Inc., and American Motorists Insurance Company, 104 N.C. App. 411, 416 (1991).

    Workman's comp has scheduled it. Since I live in Utah, I'm pretty sure I will be needing it. I just can't figure out what is considered when determining the final impairment rating for paraplegia. My injury doesn't show up on the State's impairment rating schedule.
