Whole person impairment??
I am in Illinois.

Tore rotator cuff last July. Tried PT, shots, but decided against surgery. Dr. told me he 'estimated' my loss of left shoulder to be about 50% and sent me to his PT for an impairment rating.

Six weeks later I discover that the rating has not even been seen by Dr. yet, let alone sent to WC. I did receive a copy yesterday, but it says I have a 5% Whole Person impairment.

How does that translate to my shoulder injury, and how can I find the ratings/formula?

see page 19 of the handbook for information on PPD
if you are looking to settle, your rating is just one of many factors the court might consider in determining the effects of your injury on your future earning potential. others are education, training, age, rehabilitation, labor market and the benefits given to those with similar injuries.

you can get additional information by phone or email

formula for whole person injuries are addressed in section 8 (d) 2 of the compensation act.( as a percentage of 500 weeks)
