nerve damage

impairment ratings are done on how the injury affects the function of a body part e.g. the degree to which the foot/leg/ankle is impaired e.g. atrophy, motion, strength, stability, pain, sensitivity, gait, etc.
it's not how the damage was done but how it affects function.
if the doctor uses the AMA rating guides there are provisions in it for measuring those elements. the physician could choose to use rating standards other then the AMA which may value those factors differently.

thank you!
