Most Common Worker’s Compensation Injury

The most common worker’s compensation injury I encounter has to be to the back. There are two ways to determine disability to the spine under the AMA Guidelines to Permanent Disability. The first one is the DRE which stands for the Diagnosis Based Estimate and the second way is the range of motion model which is a more complicated rating, involving diagnosis, loss of range of motion and nerve injury. We often fight for the qualified medical evaluator to apply the more difficult rating when it results ultimately in a higher rating.
