Trial Win: Neck and Back Case Disallowed Despite IME Concessions

In a case decided March 18, 2019 the allegations of neck and back injury were disallowed despite two separate IME reports conceding causation. Although the case was established for schedulable sites pursuant to §21 despite “vast inconsistencies” in the claimant’s case – this win was the direct result of seeking to cross-examine the claimant’s physician immediately at the pre-hearing conference, and not waiting to “see what the IME says” (which is a common practice).
