Disability rating and appeal
#1
Hello forum members, It's been a while since I've been on this forum. Spent the last year & a half dealing with WC, lawyers, evals, & court.

Had my court hearing a month ago and my rating came down as only 30%, which my atty is appealing at this time, based on our independent vocational assessment that the judge dismissed. The assessment and my lawyer contend that it should be in the area of 70%-90% due to my injury (pinched nerve/bad disk from decades of computer use*I'm using speech software to do this posting) and the limited earning potential as most jobs now require some computer use and "no computer use" is a written restriction from the W/C doctor.

I don't know if this is part of the game and the appeal process will rectify it, but I am very concerned. Not just by the low rating but how distant my atty & the judges rating are. 

Should I be deeply concerned with this?
