When you are injured while working, you could end up being assigned an impairment rating. This helps to determine the number of weeks you are entitled to receive benefits through a Georgia Workers' Compensation claim. Since it impacts the amount of compensation you are entitled to, it may be in your best interests to seek legal counsel from a Workers Comp lawyer in Atlanta.

Impairment ratings are calculated using information about your injury and the consequences it has had on your life.
They are assigned only when your condition is considered to be stable and unlikely to change, even with additional treatment.

Your medical records, including past medical history, will be analyzed. This may include examinations, test results and other medical data. You will also be observed, or examined by a physician. 

The determination of your impairment rating is important in deciding how long you can expect to receive benefits. If you believe you received an incorrect rating, then you may need to seek legal help.

Your Georgia Workers' Compensation case could be significantly impacted by an impairment rating. To learn how and what you can do to better protect your rights, you should consult with a Workers Comp lawyer in Atlanta.
