Term of the Day – Disability Rating
Industrial accidents are rated on a scale or schedule in order to provide a reference point for physicians, insurance companies, and employers. Upon being examined by a qualified physician or network doctor, a worker’s injury will be placed on a Disability Rating Scale to determine the level of injury, as well as the time needed for healing. Once these aspects of the injury have been determined, the amount of workers compensation pay can be determined.
