Qme findings new pd rate CA
#21
right, good catch. another example on why we need more then one set of eyes.

as much as I try to avoid assumptions, when they posted "letter" I fell for the rating being legit -- especially from someone so long in the system.

depending on the injury type, if they haven't been under surveillance before, they probably will be now.

Yes  I know that's attorneys and the ptp do not make that decision on how much I am pd & a injured worker is rated.   However the QME Dr. he is the one who rated me 81% WPI which falls within a bracket that can be altered to 100% disability rating

so that Dr. however does have the power to rate me and the Insurance company has not disputed the qme rating I do have a hearing set up with Ic defense Towards the end of the year I have been dealing with insurance companies for over 10 years and I am very aware of how they work. No I have not been thru the deu, i just got done not too long with a Qme.

This is not a rating that I made up as mentioned this is what I received from the QME report which I had obtained. Due to the condition and the severity of my injury this is something that I want to withhold. no I have not been followed by a PI but I do foresee this in the future because of the extent of the QME report rating

I came here to get it vice not to be criticized I think that we should all work together assuming mostly on this forum is someone who has either been in a work related accident or know someone who has been involved in one.

I think you just jumped the gun a bit expecting the big $$$ before there is even a DEU rating.
If you are at 100% the payments will come. You've waited 10 yrs another few months shouldn't be too difficult.
Just want you to be aware the carrier will verify everything before paying including use of a PI.

I have not seen any post that criticized you. I think it is easy to take things personally on text or forums that were not meant the way the person is reading it. If I have made you feel criticized in any way I am sorry and not my intent.
 
They hire PI's at any time, including after a settlement. This was stated for your own best interest to make sure you are within your doctors restrictions. The good PI's you would never be aware of.

Your rating has to go through the rating unit. I recommend taking your paperwork down to the WCAB your case it located and sit down with an I&A officer about your ratings and what they recommend moving forward.
I am not an attorney.Anything I write should not be considered legal advice.I am writing from my own personal experiences,which is not from any sort of legal background. You should consult with an attorney over legal issues. In California, if you cannot get an attorney you can consult with an I&A officer.

your rate depends on your Average Weekly Earnings.
Permanent Total disability or a 100% PD rating is paid at the maximum TTD rate and is also subject to yearly cost of living increases.
the current Maximum TTD rate is $1128.43 per week.
http://www.dir.ca.gov/DIRNews/2015/2015-57.pdf
if the rating is in dispute so will your payments be.
you should receive an automatic penalty for any delay in payments or increase in payments and are eligible for an additional penalty from the court for an unreasonable delay.

Thank s for me too, I live in CA $270 isn't enough to be homeless.

partial disability is not meant as a substitute for a job.
as I posted, permanent total is $1128.43/wk
both are tax free.
there are much worse situations: what if your injury was not covered by comp?
