Spring Into Action, But Fall Back on the Basics, Part 2: Permanent Disability: CVC vs Addition Method
September 11, 2020 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
1 Hour MCLE; 1 Legal Specialization in Workers’ Compensation Law
Over the last several years there have been a plethora of cases by the WCAB applying the Kite decision, which is the case that paved the way for the adding of permanent disability ratings instead of using the Combined Values Chart (CVC). Through those decisions the WCAB has clarified the parameters for when it is appropriate to add vs. use the CVC and the results can be very significant. For example, a non-life pension case can become a life pension case. Or a below 100% case can result in a 100% award. In this 1 hour presentation, the workers’ compensation practitioner will be updated on this essential area of the law and will be well prepared to navigate settlement, discovery and trial effectively for their clients.
