Comments About the May Appellate Decisions Newsletter

I have received two interesting points about cases in my newsletter. Marc Jacobs of Galfand Berger rightly notes that in MV Transportation v. WCAB, the Court indicated that an employer could file one utilization review petition for multiple physical therapists if the UR request names the doctor prescribing the physical therapy for review and not the physical therapists.

In addition, J. Brendan O’Brien of OBrien, Rulis, & Bochicchio, LLC noted that in Stancell v. WCAB, the Court also upheld the termination of benefits because Claimant made no complaints about the injured body part when asked by the IME physician or in her testimony, and it was not addressed by her expert.

Thanks to Brendan and Marc for their comments.
