The doctor that did my total knee replacement I was at statutory MMI so he gave me an IR of 20% the Workman's comp insurance Carrier disputed it and sent me to their designated doctor he gave me 35% IR. Now the insurance Carrier is disputing that IR and just got approved for a BRC. My question is are they going to keep sending me to different doctors until they get the IR rating they want which is probably 0%


I fell off a stepladder at work and injured my knee resulting in à fractured tibula ten days later I was terminated from my job with no explanation as to why I was terminated the ins carrier denied my claim and I took me over a year just to get medical attention when I finally got an MRI there was so much damage to my knee I had to get a total knee replacement. My question is can I sue the employer for wrongful termination?
