I follow LexisNexis’s Workers’ Compensation Law Community and check in often. A couple of weeks ago, Lexis posted an article from Yelena Zaslavskaya, the senior attorney for the Office of Administrative Law Judges. The article, entitled “Evaluation and Weighing of Medical Opinion Evidence in Longshore Cases,” discusses the medical evidence that is often presented in Longshore and Defense Base Act claims. Further, the article discusses how judges evaluate the medical evidence, especially where there are conflicting reports.
I don’t want to steal any thunder from the LexisNexis article. As such, I encourage you to click on the hyperlinks above and check out the article for yourself.
