Your States Website should be able to provide you with some info. you may need, and you may also need to consult with an Attorney that deals in w/c. Nurse Case Managers are not always the best people to go to , their job is to get you back to work A.S.A.P, sometimes at the risk of your Health! Try to find this info. from other sources than w/c so you can compare what they say as to what you have learned. Knowledge is Power when dealing with w/c!! Best of Luck!!

in order to compute an average you'd have to know all the ratings and there is no place where all the ratings are available.

Welcome to the forum! If you read at the bottom of my signature you will see the road I traveled with my back.
I think Limbo has given you some great advice. I would definately follow the info he has provided. He has worlds of knowledge with WC.
Sorry you are having this problem. God Bless you and please take care!
