Kristine L. Prati of Wilson Ratledge has successfully defended two cases before the Industrial Commission. The primary issue in the first case was whether the plaintiff was entitled to a reinstatement of temporary total disability benefits. On January 25, 2016, the Deputy Commissioner denied Plaintiff’s request for a reinstatement of TTD benefits, holding that Plaintiff failed to prove an impairment in his earning capacity. The Deputy Commissioner also denied Plaintiff’s request that he be provided with vocational assistance. The primary issue in the second case was whether Plaintiff was entitled to a myoelectric prosthesis. On February 11, 2016, the Deputy Commissioner denied Plaintiff’s request for the myoelectric prosthesis, holding that it was not medically or reasonably necessary.
