Winning Cases With Complex Medical Issues
Whether or not a Workers' Compensation case can be won at trial often depends upon how the Administrative Law Judge hearing the evidence rules on difficult medical issues. An ALJ has the ability to accept or reject the opinions of the medical experts who have examined the injured worker or reviewed his or her medical records. If the injured worker's testimony at trial is extremely credible and the medical experts selected by Claimant's counsel have been carefully and methodically chosen, there will be a much greater likelihood that income benefits will be awarded and medical treatment will be authorized. Ultimately, this will result in a significantly higher settlement for the injured worker.
Understanding the medical evidence, however complex, and determining which doctors would be best suited to comment on the injured worker's medical condition, requires the expertise of a skilled workers' compensation lawyer. Susan J. Sadow has proven expertise in fighting cases with complex medical cases and negotiating high dollar settlements for her clients.
