How is the whole person impairment calculated?

The whole person impairment assessment is calculated by medical assessors who determine the level of whole person permanent impairment based on the following:

  • Guidelines as to how permanent impairments are made which are published by the Motor Accidents Authority of NSW
  • Examine your medical records
  • Conduct a physical medical examination

Based on the guidelines, your medical records and the physical examination the medical assessor determines the level of whole person permanent impairment.
