  • Pechacek, v. HealthEast

    Practice Area:
    Workers Compensation
    Date:
    Aug 25, 2011
    Outcome:
    Prevailed
    Description:
    Where the judge accepted the testimony of the employee and her QRC that the employee had fully cooperated with her rehabilitation plan and had conducted a diligent job search for sixteen months, and where the judge had noted that the nurse employee was sixty years old and was competing for jobs against much younger candidates with better nursing credentials in a very difficult job market, the compensation judge’s conclusion that the employee was unlikely to find work for an indefinite period of time, and so had demonstrated permanent total disability, was not clearly erroneous and unsupported by substantial evidence.
  • Kujawa v. COBORN’S, INC

    Practice Area:
    Workers Compensation
    Date:
    Feb 16, 2011
    Outcome:
    Prevailed
    Description:
    Where, in their NOID, the employer and insurer had themselves raised the issue of causation of the cyst in the employee’s hip by referring to it as “a personal health condition” basic to the employee’s refusal of the employer’s job offer, the compensation judge could not fully address the NOID without resolving that causation issue in addition to the reasonable refusal issue, and the employer and insurer could not argue on appeal that they were prejudiced by the judge’s findings on the causation issue as an improper expansion of issues in an expedited hearing.
  • Bogdanowicz v. Target Corp

    Practice Area:
    Workers Compensation
    Date:
    Feb 12, 2013
    Outcome:
    Prevailed
    Description:
    CAUSATION - MEDICAL TREATMENT; CAUSATION - TEMPORARY AGGRAVATION; CAUSATION - PRE-EXISTING CONDITION. Despite the lack of a specific anatomical diagnosis and the employee’s pre-existing multiple sclerosis, there is substantial evidence, including medical opinions, to support the compensation judge’s conclusion that the medical treatment at issue is reasonable, necessary, and causally related to the employee’s work injury.
  • Milbrat v. The Marketplace, Inc

    Practice Area:
    Workers Compensation
    Date:
    Oct 22, 2012
    Outcome:
    Prevailed
    Description:
    Substantial evidence supported the compensation judge’s conclusion that the employee’s automobile accident occurred when she was on her way from her doctor’s office to obtain prescription medication related to her original work injury, and, under these circumstances, the compensation judge did not err in concluding that the injuries the employee sustained in the automobile accident were a compensable consequence of her work injury.

    Practice Area:
    Workers Compensation
    Date:
    May 21, 2015
    Outcome:
    Prevailed
    Description:
    Substantial evidence, including the employee’s testimony and adequately founded medical expert opinion, supports the compensation judge’s determination that the February 17, 2012, incident at work was a substantial contributing cause of the employee’s SI joint condition and a permanent aggravation of her preexisting lumbar spine condition.
