Please note that this information is offered as general information and is not intended as legal advice as to your particular claim. There may be options other than obtaining a second rating evaluation. For example, as an attorney experienced in ratings, I will sometimes write to the rating doctor and ask about a particular aspect of the rating that I think is questionable.
An addendum to an existing rating is less costly. It is impossible to discuss all options that may be available to particular injured workers. It is a simple and free process to ask a worker’s compensation attorney to look at the insurer’s offer and the first rating report.
