Saltz v. M.W. Sewall & Co.

Summary:  The Appellate Division panel found Hearing Officer Collier did not err by rejecting the opinion of an independent medical examiner (IME) regarding the duration of the employee’s incapacity. Deferring to the hearing officer’s findings as to credibility and medical/factual issues, the panel concluded the evidence the hearing officer relied on could reasonably have persuaded him it was highly probable the IME was incorrect in his assessment of the duration of the employee’s incapacity.
