Your doctor has to use what's called the Florida Impairment Guides in identifying what impairment rating you have. It's a convoluted process depending on what type of injury you have. Once the doctor has assessed the computation of the impairment rating, he writes it out on a DWC-25 Form. What we do in our practice is go back and check the DWC-25 or the doctor's records of an impairment rating and identify if it's correct or not. It's not an easy process. We use what's called the 1996 Impairment Guides to do so, and it's important that they get it right. They don't always get it right and it's important to check those numbers.
