Tim Crljenica was successful in defending an accident benefits claim for income replacement benefits, medical benefits, removal from the Minor Injury Guideline, and funding for catastrophic impairment assessments. The decision is M.A.H. v. Travelers Insurance (19-002005/AABS).
Following a three day hearing, LAT Adjudicator Therese Reilly concluded that the claimant did not suffer any of chronic pain, concussion, psychological impairment, or pre-existing conditions. The adjudicator also preferred the opinion of the insurer’s psychological expert over that of the claimant’s expert. The evidence also showed that the claimant continued to work in his pre-accident employment and began a new occupation in the year after the accident.
