Mica Nguyen Worthy and Jerri Simmons (both from Charlotte) obtained a favorable opinion from the Full Commission in a case where the plaintiff alleged an electrical injury. Notably, the Deputy Commissioner who heard this case determined plaintiff’s electrical injury was compensable and awarded medical compensation. However, there were significant credibility and medical causation issues in this claim, and these issues were argued on appeal. Ultimately, the Full Commission reversed the Deputy Commissioner’s Opinion and Award and denied plaintiff’s claim for benefits in its entirety.
