Permanent Partial Disability Evaluations-2014

By Jason Weinstock on July 13, 2015

Thank you to Katherine Godwin, Supervisor of the Medical Unit, at the Devision of Industrial Relations-Workers Compensation Section, for providing me with the number of rating evaluations in Nevada for fiscal year 2014 (July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014).

A total of 5405 ratings were assigned by DIR, with 1249 in the North, 3749 in the South, and 407 in the Rural part of Nevada.   The official statistics reported to the U.S. Labor Department for the number of all claims filed is only published for 2013, so I cannot give accurate information on the percentage of Nevada claims that resulted in a permanent partial disability evaluation in 2014.  Typically,  in past years, only about 10% of Nevada claims result in a rating evaluation.
