Savannah Workers’ Compensation Lawyer – I Was Given An Impairment Rating, Now What?

I was given an impairment rating now what?  If you have been given an impairment rating, typically your doctor believes you are at MMI.  MMI stands for maximum medical improvement.  Typically this means the doctor does not believe there is anything medically speaking that can be done to improve your condition.  So then the doctor will either schedule you an FCE (functional capacity evaluation) or will look up in the AMA 5th Edition Guideline for Impairments and determined based upon your status what your impairment rating is to your injured body part or whole body.

In order to calculate what your impairment rating means to you, please see page 2 or the back of the WC-2 which you can get by going to:

If you disagree with your doctor, you should speak with a Savannah, Georgia workers’ compensation attorney to discovery what you can do moving forward.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
