Paul Zayat of SRTK’s Greater Los Angeles Office recently secured a Dismissal of a claim in a case involving a litigated and admitted right ankle injury. Paul was referred the file and immediately began aggressive discovery tactics including subpoenaing all relevant medical, scheduling the applicant’s deposition and quick and aggressive contact with applicant’s counsel questioning the validity of the claim in light of the medical records received thus far. Paul also brought into question the mechanism of injury and reasonableness and validity of applicant’s counsel’s request to change primary treating physicians at the outset of the claim. Soon thereafter the applicant desired to dismiss the claim and a subsequent Order Dismissing the Claim was granted by the Workers’ Compensation Judge.
Great work, Paul!
