    Default Knee Injury Rating

    My case is open in the CA STATE
    Iím 35 I got injured at work on 06/25/18
    Iím a field IT TECH
    I felt from step kick stole
    I hurt my knee, first the doctor thought is just a spring but after multiple visit an MRI showed a messed up knee: ACL tear, meniscus tear and a lot of medical name for fluid and displacement of part in the knee.
    Luckly my employer have the Hartford IC
    So with less trouble everything get approved in days. I got surgery and they repair the ACL and trimmed the meniscus about 50%.
    Iím still having instability with my knee and back pain.
    They still want me to do PT.
    But nothing is improving.
    I have a question about how the doctor will rate my injury in the final report.
    Another question is if anyone delt before with the Hartford before?

    It's impossible to guess, everyone heals differently.

    He will wait until you reach max medical improvement and assign a loss of use rating.
    You can go through the postings in the California forum to see if there's others who had a knee injury rating to get an idea of what to expect - Or cut and paste "ACL tear, meniscus tear" in the search pane in the upper right of this screen.

    Like I said, everyone is different so what happens to them may not apply to you.
