Trial Win: Claim Disallowed Due to Conflicting Prior History

Left knee claim disallowed by the trial judge on March 6, 2019 due to conflicting histories and mechanisms of injury, initial records which indicated a degenerative osteoarthritic condition, the fact that she filed for short-term disability, and because the first records referencing a work-related condition were not generated until three months after the alleged accident. Notably, the employer’s expert report conceded a left leg injury.
