This past Thursday, the Vermont Department of Labor’s Workers’ Compensation Adjusters’ Conference was held and Brady/Donahue's own Brendan Donahue spoke about opioid rules and the opioid problem from a claimant’s perspective.
In his presentation, Brendan went through and specified important issues clients have had in facing litigation related to opioids, and how their lawyers can make the process easier. He emphasized his dissatisfaction with a system where claimants can be punished for administrative mistakes made by their doctors which may result in the insurance carrier filing a discontinuance of the injured worker’s medications. Brendan explained how he and his practice would handle this situation.
“I urge you to speak to the claimants’ physicians so you are better educated. I also recommend looking for creative solutions,” Brendan told the crowd at his speech. Representing his firm, which values a client’s health and safety, Brendan's presentation supports Brady/Donahue's commitment to helping injured workers.
