Melissa Geil Take Nothing

Melissa Geil, Trial Attorney of Gilson Daub’s Orange County offices, received a Findings and Order of a “Take Nothing” following a trial on a denied cumulative trauma case. 

The applicant had pled a cumulative trauma against her current employer while simultaneously pleading a specific injury claim against a prior employer. The primary treating physician medical reporting only discussed the mechanism and disability from the applicant’s specific injury claim and the Panel QME found the case to be non-industrial as to the cumulative trauma claim. Ms. Geil successfully tried the case and the judge determined that the insurer was not liable for the applicant’s cumulative trauma claim.
