Recent Hearing Decisions
Over at the website for the Office of Administrative Courts they do, from time to time, post all or most of the workers comp hearing decisions. They redact or edit out certain parts especially the claimant's name but the reasoning and facts found are all there for anyone to review. The latest they have is for February 2011 and the decisions start with a claimant wanting botox to matters involving compensability and a host of other matters. It is always interesting to read what is happening at the local level. Moreover they do include names of doctors or other experts so you can see what case that doctor has been involved with. If you want to see how complex this field can get go ahead and look at these cases. Moreover the cases do set forth what the hearing judge believes is the law with citations though any of the cases can be subject to an appeal.
