This is my fifth hearing but the last one was postponded because of a wc lawyer sudden death (not mine) A lot of Lawyers withdrew because of the sensitivity of the day.

Because of the difference in ratings there could be a hearing that would be set to determine which doctors rating is more credible. This happened to me with a 32% from my doctor and a 10% from the IC doctor. I did not have a lawyer and they found the IC doctor more credible. I was paid only the 10%.

Seeing you have a lawyer he should know how to handle this hearing and how to show your doctors ratings more credible. I was not able to do that. If I could do it all again, I would of hired a lawyer to be able to show how my doctor WAS more credible and his exam was more involved than the 10 min. exam the IC doctor did. Good luck.
