Randall Harrison, Petitioner
Workers' Compensation Appeal Board (Auto Truck Transport Corp.), Respondent
MARY HANNAH LEAVITT, Judge
AND NOW, this 23rd day of October, 2013, the Court's opinion in the above matter, filed October 2, 2013, is amended as follows:
On page 8, the first full paragraph's first two sentences, beginning with "The IRE is undertaken…" and ending with "…recovered from his work injury" are deleted and replaced with the following:
The IRE is undertaken to determine whether the claimant has any impairment attributable to the work injury. It is separate and distinct from an IME, which is undertaken to determine the claimant's level of disability, i.e., his ability to perform his pre-injury job, or whether the claimant has fully recovered.
In all other respects, the opinion and order shall remain in effect.
