A rating is a percentage calculation by your doctor of how much a certain body part is impaired. It is generally given when your doctor does not expect your medical condition to significantly get better or worse in the foreseeable future.
A rating absolutely does not determine how much money you get paid. What seems like a low rating may translate into significant compensation or other benefits. It depends on the body parts involved, the wage you were making when hurt, your education level, and other factors.
