CaseLaw Update Round-up

 By Cassandra Roberts, Esq. 

As promised, I am continuing to make CaseLaw Update available through the Detour & Frolic.  And  because I never met a case I didn’t like, I give you the following highlights……………..

From the January 18, 2017 Update:

  • Dental Disfigurement due to missing teeth from heavy narcotic usage for work-related injury, check out Virgil Pugh & Kieran Sniadowski
  • DME doc Fedder trumps treating doc  Rudin in a surgery case  in Barbara Zakarewicz
  • There is no such thing as an after-the-fact  “payment without prejudice”, see Ivan Taylor
  • In another “Chris Baum Cherishable”,  the Brenda Boyce decision contains a mini-treatise on the standard required for Res Judicata and Collateral Estoppel
  • Priors on the down low…..IAB rescinds Agreement as to Comp where Claimant less than candid as to his pre-existings in Christopher Moore
  • Taking a ride on the “resolved train” are Tamaryn Gardner and Kenyatta Brooks
  • Ketamine on parade in Calvin Wilkerson and Sandra Thurston

From the May 2, 2017 Update:

    • For a “casual employee” case,  see Mary Lou Vail
    • An example of “actual displacement” can be found in Walter Wright
    • Bertha Schwartz is awarded residential nursing case
    • The out-of-state medical provider amendment is not retroactive, so says the Stephanie Saulsbury case
  • Vernon Robinson and a “popliteal pseudo aneurysm” related to work activity


My hope is to eventually have every CaseLaw Update archived, going back to the beginning, 20 plus years ago.  A girl can dream, right?   J
