Robert Hanneman represents client and carrier in Workers' Compensation Knee claim

    Successfully represented a client and carrier in a workers’ compensation claim that involved a compensable right knee injury.  After initial treatment for the right knee, the employee attempted to include the right hip as part of the compensable matter (since he obtained a report indicating he now needed a total right hip replacement surgery as part of the compensation claim).  This issue was opposed and after testimony of the employee and submission of pre-existing treatment records, the Court agreed with defense counsel and opined that the right hip was not part of the compensable claim.  If included as part of the claim, the potential future exposure in medical, indemnity and permanency could have been extensive.
