REVERSAL OF ADVERSE DHO ORDER – THOMAS & CO. CONTINUES FIGHTING ADVERSE DECISIONS

The Claimant was a dock worker who sustained a Lumbar, Thoracic, and Neck Sprain, as a result of an incident that occurred while pulling a pallet jack. Subsequently, he filed a motion to have this claim additionally allowed for a Disc Bulge at L5-S1.

THOMAS & CO. RESULTS

Thomas & Co. took the claim. We thoroughly reviewed the claim, obtained necessary medical documentation, and developed legal, medical, and factual arguments in support of the Employer/Client’s position. The Claimant’s motion for the additional allowance was heard by a District Hearing Officer who found that the disc bulge at L5-S1 was caused by the industrial injury.

Thomas & Co. appealed this adverse decision to the Staff Hearing Officer administrative level. The Staff Hearing Officer reversed the previous lower order and disallowed the claim for a Disc Bulge at L5-S1. The Claimant did not appeal this matter into Common Pleas Court.

Through Thomas & Co.’s Relentless Defense of the Claim, the Employer/Client Was Able to Obtain a Denial of the More Serious Disk Bulge Condition Being Allowed for in the Claim.
