J.P. Christiansen wins appeal in Mary Murphy v. Graphic Packaging
In Mary Murphy v. Graphic Packaging and Liberty Mutual Ins. Co, J.P. Christiansen won an appeal for his client on a workers compensation matter. In Murphy, the plaintiff claimed to have carpel tunnel syndrome as an occupational disease as a result of her job. The Office of Workers Compensation hearing officer ruled in the plaintiff's favor. However, on appeal, J.P. convinced the Second Circuit Court of Appeal to reverse, finding that the plaintiff failed to provide medical evidence to support her claim of an occupation disease.
