Workers' Compensation Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen

 

AC39484 - Singh v. CVS (Workers' Compensation; conclusion that plaintiff had reached maximum medical improvement for a compensable toe injury; “The board affirmed the commissioner’s determination on the ground that the plaintiff’s medical condition was the result of degenerative processes unrelated to the compensable injury. The board concluded that evidence in the record found persuasive and credible by the commissioner supported that determination. On appeal, the plaintiff claims that the commissioner improperly failed to (1) apply credible evidence in accordance with the applicable law, specifically General Statutes § 31-349, and (2) perform an analysis of the plaintiff’s total disability consistent with the precedent in Osterlund v. State, 135 Conn. 498, 66 A.2d 363 (1949), and, therefore, the board improperly affirmed the decision of the commissioner.”)
