There is a form to file if you want a lump sum payment, and you have to explain why you want your money, crazy. but can you get the money to start your own business ? Would this be acceptable? Why do you need to explain why you want your own money?
It is fairly unusual to get a lump sum payment for your rating. But your inquiry needs to start from the beginning: is your rating sufficient under the ratings guidelines? Do you need an opinion from another doctor concerning it? Have your medical needs been adequately addressed? Are you losing wages?
Because taking a rating means that you are selecting a remedy, your potential for wage loss needs to be weighed against the amount of permanent partial disability that you have been given by the doctor. Sometimes people jump at the prospect of a payment too quickly, only to regret the decision.
Like every decision, signing a form for a rating has consequences. This is a question that could benefit from the opinion of a board-certified Worker's Compensation attorney. At the very least your medical records should be examined. Remember that the insurance company does not have your best interests at heart.See question

Your husband needs to hire an experienced, board certified attorney. There can be many reasons why a case is denied; some are valid and some are not.
