Kristine L. Prati has successfully defended a case before the Industrial Commission. At issue was whether the employee was entitled to medical and indemnity benefits as a result of an occupational disease she allegedly sustained at one of her last three employers. On July 17, 2015, the deputy commissioner filed an Opinion and Award, determining that the employee is disabled as a result of her current medical condition; however, her medical condition was not caused by her employment with any of the named employers.
