A July preliminary hearing order from Administrative Law Judge Steven Roth awarding an injured Kansas worker temporary total disability (TTD), medical treatment and payment of medical bills was upheld on appeal.  The Kansas worker sustained injury to her back, neck, head, brain and hips as well as other body parts.

However, her employer and the insurance company appealed the workman’s comp case, arguing that the injuries did not occur during her time at work.  They contended that the evidence proves the Kansas worker’s medical conditions were preexisting.  The Judge decided that her injuries were indeed sustained while at work upon reviewing the evidence.  The order from the original decision was upheld.  The Kansas worker will receive medical treatment, payment of medical bills,  and weekly compensation to be paid by the Respondent.
