Juan Cruz v. Petaluma Poultry Processors
Medical-Legal Procedure—Panel Qualified Medical Evaluators—Medical Reports as Evidence—WCAB held that reports of applicant/poultry processor's treating physician, although inconsistent with panel qualified medical evaluator's opinion, constituted substantial evidence to support finding that applicant's 10/25/2005 right shoulder injury caused temporary total disability from 6/4/2008 to present and continuing, and that opinion of panel qualified medical evaluator was entitled to no more weight than that of treating physician in determining liability, notwithstanding mandatory dispute resolution process in Labor Code § 4062 et seq. © Copyright 2010 LexisNexis.
