Who does my final rating ??
I'm in southern illinois and was injured 4 years ago .. I ended having 2 micro disc and a l3-l4 spinal fusion .. I was declared MMI 2 weeks ago from my docs but nobody has mentioned anything about a rating and I asked my lawyer also about it and he said don't worry about rating .. Is that true ?? My surgeons haven't said anything to me either when I last saw them .. Is the insurance co going to send me to get rated or something?? I don't know how this stuff works obviously and any info will help so thanks ahead of time !! Will my checks change from TTD to PPD or something also ? I know a lot of questions but any info is appreciated .
Illinois also uses other factors along with impairment and disability--like loss of future earnings, your age, and your occupation to determine the value of additional benefits.
generally settlements are based on those with similar injuries and outcomes. whether you'll need a rating from your treating doctor or another rating specialist will be best left to your atty to decide.

more on work comp in Illinois in the handbook here

workers comp is much different then negligence law and the payouts are significantly less.

........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
