Interested in reopening his worker's compensation case, a man came to see me who injured his neck several years ago. His case had been closed on a final admission of liability when the doctor said he was at maximum medical improvement and gave him a 0% impairment. This seemed strange since the man was still seeing the same doctor for injections and narcotic painkiller. I thought he should have received a disability rating. I visited the doctor who told me he made a mistake and that my client should have got a rating. The doctor wrote a report admitting the mistake and gave an 8% rating.
