Recent WC cases for January 2009
Here is a link to recent decided cases/orders in workers compensation proceedings in January 2009. These are hearings held at the local level on a variety of issues. This link is to over 300 pages of decisions and some are quite complicated. It is not exactly easy reading but makes you aware how difficult these proceedings can get. The format for these are that first the judge issues findings of fact based on the testimony and reports/exhibits provided at the hearing. Then the judge makes conclusions and enters an order. You can see that many times the claimant loses. Hearings certainly place each side at risk as these cases show.
