Successful prosecution of termination petition.
We successfully prosecuted a termination petition on behalf of a national communications carrier. The claimant was a long-term employee for the employer. In this capacity, he was injured in a motor vehicle accident and then from a subsequent altercation with the other driver. The employer acknowledged significant cognitive injuries, which the defense was successfully able to terminate through medical evidence from a Board Certified orthopedic surgeon. On this basis, the judge granted a complete termination of benefits despite ongoing subjective complaints of disability from the claimant.
