Proving Disability In A Workers Compensation Case

Posted by Tom Cummings & filed under Areas of Practice, DLP Law, Workers Compensation.


Question: How does an injured worker in Pennsylvania establish that he cannot perform his job?
Answer: To prove that you are “disabled” in a workers compensation case requires competent unequivocal medical testimony. The medical evidence must establish that the employee is unable of performing the time-of-injury job. The medical opinion evidence must be rendered within a reasonable degree of medical certainty and must consider the facts and circumstances of the case.
