Hearty Congratulations and a tip of the advocacy chapeau to our Shikha Sharma who was successful before the Licence Appeal Tribunal in M.M. and Northbridge in persuading Adjudicator Sewrattan that the applicant was not entitled to the payment of income replacement benefits (IRBs).
Our Linda Kiley observes that the key to the Adjudicator’s decision was his finding that the applicant’s report submitted by Dr. Wong (physiatrist) did not support the applicant's position. The Adjudicator ruled that Dr. Wong had failed to establish a link between the tests that he conducted and his diagnosis of chronic pain syndrome. The Adjudicator agreed with Shikha’s submissions that the applicant had failed to satisfy his onus of establishing a causal link between his post-accident symptoms and his inability to return to his pre-accident employment.
Please see paras. 22-29 in this respect.
A non-cuttable and non-pasteable version of the decision is attached.
Well Done, Shikha!
