Workers’ Compensation – Casuation – Back Injury – Recurrence – Medical Testimony (access required)

Alawar v. Courtyard Marriott North Dr. Shehzad Choudry expressed his opinion to a reasonable degree of medical certainty that plaintiff’s current need for surgery is related to the back injury he suffered while working for the defendant-employer in 2003. Dr. Leonard Nelson also opined that plaintiff’s current condition is a “natural consequence” of his original injury. The fact that the doctors also gave conflicting testimony that lessened their certainty concerning the cause of plaintiff’s current condition goes to the weight of their testimony, but it does not preclude consideration of the testimony altogether.
