Trouble Recalling Past Medical Treatment?
Having a hard time remembering all your prior medical treatment and injuries? You are not alone. In a recent case, the employer argued that because the worker forgot to tell his doctor about a prior motor vehicle accident (MVA), he should not be believed about his current accident. The Workers’ Compensation Board (Board) disagreed, noting that the worker did tell the insurance company doctors about the MVA and did remember to tell his treating doctor for his workers’ compensation claim. The Board said the injured worker was telling the truth.
