Carr v. DHHS
The Parsons presumption — addressing whether additional medical treatment is related to a prior injury — may apply when plaintiff’s injury is wholly different from the one accepted on the Form 60. In this case, plaintiff proved her neck injury was causally related to her left hand injury and therefore compensable. However, the Industrial Commission failed to make findings that plaintiff made a reasonable effort to obtain alternative employment, or that to do so would be futile because of preexisting conditions; therefore, plaintiff’s disability ruling is remanded.
