    Default Disability Rating

    Are disability ratings that are given by your doctor as well as the IME doctors the same as loss of earnings capacity as seen in Non SLU.

    No, that's your perm physical disability rating.
    Loss of earning capacity is determined by your age, education, the local job market and other factors.

    So if my doctor has me at 100% disabled and the insurance company dr performs an IME and has me at 75% disability rating. Letís say MMI is reached on those numbers. Who does the judge pick as the correct %
