Is 5% good, fair or poor rating?
#1
Does anyone know if 5% for a back/shoulder injury a decent rating. I have a friend that wants to know. Thanks

I don't know if that question can be answered here. A rating is based on the appropriete AMA guide. Without having that guide and more specific info., I just don't think it can be answered.

I will say, my rating was 10% for a back injury that has left me disabled.

Take Care
8-05, Micro laminectomy/disectomy. 10-05 lumbar fusion L5-S1. 2-07 exploritory surgery. 12-07 medical implant, Spinal Cord Stimulator. now receiving SSDI. After going back to school, I received my degree as a mechanical engineer. What can I say, it was the only way I had to beat the system.

The lower the rating the better the recovery and the less the disability and payments. 100% means they're totally disabled and pays the most.
Without knowing anything about the seriousness of the injury a 95% return of function with only a 5 % loss would seem to be pretty good healthwise.
But "good" or "decent" depends on whether they're looking for health & wellness or $$.
There is not enough information to tell if the rating on an unknown worker is accurate.

Just to clarify, my rating was fom WC and the word DISABLED is in reference to SSA

I just wanted to say that so there is no confusion with what I said and 1171 said. 1171 is speaking strictly about WC and not SSA. Please correct me if I am wrong in reference to your post 1171.
