Re: Impairment Rating Now What
You can try but I doubt anyone will want to deal with a claim with a rating that low.
Do I even need to acquire an attorney
I have no idea of how a doctor can give advice on settlements, he's just guessing.
As a rule of thumb, anything less than a 5% rating is considered that you're a 100% healed.
Remember, an Impairment Rating isn't a loss of earning capacity rating.
You could have a 50% Impairment Rating and still not have a loss of earning capacity if there's work available within your restrictions.
