Approved for SSD Just received 2nd MMI rating
#1
Colorado here. I received a call from SSD attorney stating that I my case was approved! It didn't take them very long to make that decision. I applied in May, approved 11/15/2011. The clincher is since my W/C injury (11-2008) I'd had serious psych issues requiring medications, and 2 wks of hospital stay, on going psych counseling. Due two my CRPS that the W/C doctors were treating me for. My primary doc., and surgeon both agreed that I do have CRPS (left hand/arm). But on 12/10 the DIME doctor stated that didn't have it and my treatments stop! Also stated that I wasn't at MMI and reqested Brachical Plexus blocks and continued PT.

11/15/2011, SSD doc agreed that I do have CRPS, chronic server hypertention resulting from pain, certain medications, stress etc. Damage of left ulnar nerve and bi-laterial damage of both upper extreminties. CRPS has spread to left shoulder and neck. Case approved. Due to memory loss, anxiety, depression SSD states that I have to have a Power Of Attorney to handle my SSD benifits (money)...this sucks BIG TIME.

W/C as of October 31, 2011 placed me at MMI with a whole body rating of 10%. I am to see once again the same DIME doc for his opinion. My question is will SSD decision have any bearings on my W/C case? And yes I do have an attorney whom is requesting a copy of my SSD letter. I will call tomorrow to pose this same question to the attorney...just wanted an opinion from the forum.

God Bless

not with the carrier but maybe with the judge.
if there is a hearing and you introduce the SSD report the judge will weigh that evidence along with everything else and make a decision.
it just one piece of evidence and not any more critical or important then other medical opinions.
