Is there a time restraint in a NYS workers comp case to get a disability rating? I am 6.5 yrs into my claim and still treating?

You need to post this with a NY address to get a response from a NY lawyer.

As already posted, repost in the NY WC section. You should get some answers.

As a general rule, the doctor cannot assign a disability rating until the patient reaches "MMI" or maximum medical improvement. So if you are still being treated, an impairment or disability rating is premature. Treatment stops at MMI.

But post in the NY forum so a NY lawyer can answer for you.
