OWCP Schedule Award
I am going to the Dr. on Tuesday for a second schedule award due to my injury getting worse. How should my Dr. word his report so it does not look like my impairment rating changed due to normal day to day activities? I have not been working and have done nothing to aggravate my condition. Thanks
it depends a lot on the situation surrounding your prior award.
basically the doctor has to show that your condition continued to deteriorate on it's own accord and as a natural consequence of the injury.
the key is now how to show that your condition has stabilized and should be rated rather then waiting further.
Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
Thank You 1171, I am so glad I found this forum. It's scary going through this stuff alone.
