Q SAN DIEGO CALIFORNIA AMA IMPAIRMENT LAW FIRM: What does "Whole Person Impairment" under the AMA guidelines mean, and why is it important in my personal injury case?
The AMA Fifth (5th) Edition Permanent Impairment guidelines mandates that an person's impairment is calculated under a formula that combines impairments from multiple body parts/functions and how it impairs the person as a whole. In essence, it is a ratio of how an impairment affects the entire body. You can see my video on "Personal Injury Case Value" where I briefly explain this ratio process and give specific examples.
