TOPICS:

Considerations Under IC 22-3-2-2

What did the changes made post-Milledge v. The Oaks really do? Is Olinger Construction Company v. Mosbey still good law when it comes to traveling employees? If a job increases the dangerous effects of injury but the employee has a syncopal event, will the injury be compensable? Is a court created presumption of the same weight as a rule? Does the Supreme Court holding in Talas v. Correct Piping that ambiguities in the law must be resolved in favor of the employee to achieve the humane purposes of the Act play any role in this analysis?


What is the Import and Effect of IC 22-3-3-27?

What constitutes a "change" and to which "condition?" Can the condition be anything other than the inured worker's physical status post-injury? Does a change in conditions need to be unexpected?


Aspects of Medical Evidence to Consider

How ancient must evidence of previous injuries or conditions be to be irrelevant? 5 years? 10 years? Lifetime? Aggravation, acceleration, exacerbation - is it anything more than guesswork? How to calculate possible future medical needs related to a work comp injury when there are pre-existing considerations.


Apportionment in Permanent Total Disability Cases

How does IC 22-3-3-12 really work? Why don't we have Permanent Partial Disability in Indiana? Considerations of the Bowles v. Griffin Industries case.
