(Texas) I rcvd my impairment rate
#1
I rcvd the medical evaluation per DD state I reached my MMI and gave me 5% impairment.. My doctor disagree on MMI he said how can DD say I reach MMI when I have not had my 2nd ESI which is 02/04/10..My doctor said will send letter to Worker Comp Ins with disagreement....What happen next does anyone know? What should i do if I'm not ready I'm still in pain? Is 5% good for the diagnosis?
injury 08/04/09....L4-L5 and L5-S1 there is mild diffuse broad-based bulging of the disk...In addition there is minor facet and ligamentous hypertrophy..Nerve root irritation on L5-S1.12/18/09 facet injection to L5-S1 and tailbone..02/04/2010 another facet injection.MMI on 01/18/2010 IR 8%
