Dawn Lane (Raleigh) recently obtained a Form 24 approval in a claim wherein a claimant sustained a left shoulder contusion and left hip contusion.  Defendants had previously filed a Motion to Compel Compliance with Medical Treatment due plaintiff’s continued pattern of noncompliance with medical treatment.  An Order was issued by the IC compelling plaintiff to comply with all medical treatment, including, but not limited to, attendance to medical appointments.  Plaintiff continued her pattern of noncompliance with medical treatment and, in addition, refused to return to work despite the employer’s willingness to accommodate plaintiff’s sedentary duty work restrictions.  Defendants filed a Form 24 Application and the IC terminated plaintiff’s benefits effective the date on which the Form 24 Application was filed.

The outcome of a particular case cannot be predicated upon a lawyer's or law firm's past results.
