DeadCan anyone give me some good information (like an attorney) what is the best chose for an appeal? My letter said that I had 4 choses and i felt that asking for the oral hearing with a videoconference was probable the best.
Also, I'm try to find out if the DMA (district medical office doctors) can use old  IME examinations documentation in their response letter for the notice of decision for a partial permanent impairment examination. I think that I read that in the 5th edition, it said that they cannot use IME stuff because it is work related and not for the PPI examinations. Dr. Garelick, DMA said in his response about my case alot of stuff from old IME's that I had done for work restrictions and work ability documentation to my employer years ago. Thanks for your input.
