Workers’ Compensation – Causation – Expert Testimony Unnecessary – Eyewitness Testimony (access required)

McCrary v. King Bio, Inc. Given that the situation at issue here was “uncomplicated,” that plaintiff’s wrist pain appeared “immediately” after her work-place accident and has continued since that time, that one of plaintiff’s co-workers observed the accident and corroborated plaintiff’s account of the circumstances surrounding her injury, that plaintiff promptly reported the injury to her superiors and sought medical treatment, and that plaintiff did not have any pain in her wrist prior to the injury, we conclude that plaintiff was not required to present expert testimony in order to show a causal link between the injury and her wrist pain.
