Client Prevails In Occupational Disease Defense

Charles McGee was recently successful in defending a client from a claim for workers’ compensation benefits from an alleged occupational disease. The claimant sought benefits for an alleged foot condition she claimed to have developed as a result of the standing and walking requirements of her job. Charles presented lay and expert testimony indicating the claimant did not sustain an injury as alleged and could not meet her burden of demonstrating she was entitled to benefits for her alleged foot condition. Following a full evidentiary hearing and depositions of multiple physicians, a Deputy Commissioner ruled in favor of Charles’ client and determined the claimant had not sustained a compensable injury by occupational disease to her foot and was not entitled to any benefits therefor.
