Impairment Rating Calculations
October 21, 2014
Workers’ compensation insurance provides benefits to workers who are injured on a job or at a job site. Compensation for employees has been deemed necessary because many people who are injured on the job are unable to perform their employment duties for a while, or in extreme cases they may not ever be able to return to work. Because of the severity of a decision of this magnitude for both the employer and the injured employee, certain criteria have been put into place to ensure that correct compensation is awarded to those who qualify. An impairment rating test must be completed before a disability claim can be filed and before any needed care can be received.
Sovereign Rehabilitation features specially trained premier therapists who are able to provide impairment rating calculations, as well as workplace injury treatments. Due to the fact that many people have tried to abuse the workers’ compensation program, strict guidelines must be adhered to by those who have been injured on the job. Employees must seek evaluation from a licensed medical professional (such as a physical, manual, or occupational therapist) in order to determine eligibility for Workers’ Compensation and Disability Insurance.
If you have been injured on the job or at a job site, please contact Sovereign Rehabilitation as soon as possible. Time is usually of the essence when dealing with work related injuries that can result in workers’ compensation. We have several locations available to serve you with impairment rating calculations. At Sovereign Rehabilitation, we also have a complete physical and rehabilitation therapy program to treat your work related injuries. Call us today so that your eligibility can be determined for the important benefits that you need.
