Workers’ Compensation – Disability – Doctor’s Testimony – Contradictory Conclusions (access required)

Minor v. United Health Services, Inc. The Industrial Commission found - based on the doctor it found most credible - that plaintiff's continuing back pain is likely attributable to factors unrelated to her back injury, such as her obesity and age. Despite making this finding of fact, the commission concluded that plaintiff was entitled to disability compensation. The commission's findings of fact do not support its conclusion that plaintiff's inability to obtain employment was caused by her work injury. Reversed and remanded.
