Ohio-Employer appeal schedule loss/dr appt
Hello. This is in the state of Ohio. My son (who was a minor when injured) was granted by the BWC an award for 2/3 loss of his index finger which allows him to receive compensation for 23 weeks and 2 days (by the state calculation). His finger was amputated just above the PIP joint. The middle phalanx is gone except a little piece. The ER report, the OR report, all subsequent dr's reports and the Xray confirm this. The employer/MCO is appealing this ruling. They have scheduled him to see a new dr. I am confident that this ruling will stand as the state rule for this is pretty cut and dry. They have a chart that spells out what defines what amount of compensation. What should we expect at this dr's appointment and is it possible this will not actually go to a hearing? He is almost 2 hours away at college and can not keep missing class for their games. Not to mention I will have to take off of work to go with him. I am slightly nervous about going to a new dr if they don't believe the xray what kind of dr are they sending us to?
