Jeffrey Seyfried appeal to WC Board

    Successfully appealed to the Workers Compensation Appeal Board (WCAB) wherein the Board reversed the decision of a WCJ granting a claim petition for carpal tunnel.  The Board agreed with the argument that the WCJ erred in granting the petition on the basis that employee’s testimony that she suffered a specific injury while lifting a box was entirely inconsistent with her medical expert's testimony that her carpal tunnel was caused by repetitive work.   Based upon these inconsistencies, the WCAB reversed the WCJ’s decision in its entirety resulting in a recoupment of from the Supersedeas Fund in excess of $100,000 for the client.
