Breaking The Mold Of The Assembly Line Workers’ Compensation Firm By Building Client-Based Defense Partnerships

DID YOU KNOW? FACEBOOK PAGES ARE NOT CONSIDERED “SURVEILLANCE” THAT HAS TO BE DISCLOSED BEFORE A CLAIMANT TESTIFIES.

A good friend recently shared a Board Panel decision with me where the Board found that unlike the situation where the carrier has surveillance materials, the existence of which must be disclosed before a Claimant testifies, a carrier does not need to disclose information gathered from someone’s Facebook page before the Claimant testifies. Although the decision is not in Lexis’ database yet, it can be found on this website on the Client Resources page.
