Waddel Signs: What does it mean for my Minnesota workers’ compensation case?

By June 4, 2010No Comments

One of the many ways the employer and insurer may try to deny you claim is on the basis that you are “faking” your symptoms. In order to determine if you are faking, they will typically have you undergo an Adverse Medical Examination to assess your symptoms. Mike Bryant posted about “Waddel signs” which is a series of tests that the adverse examiner may use to determine if you are faking.

As Mr. Bryant noted in his blog, if an adverse examiner believes you have certain “Waddel signs” there are ways in which an experienced attorney can attack those findings.

If you find yourself in a situation where you are without council and the adverse examiner is against you, it may be in your best interests to retain an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to help you.
