de La Cerda v. Martin Selko & Co. 2017 Cal. Wrk. Comp. P.D. LEXIS 533: The WCAB reversed the trial court's findings that the injured worker was entitled to an apportioned award.

WCAB Van Nuys District Office, April 21, 2020

The WCAB reversed the trial court's findings that the injured worker was entitled to an apportioned award. In doing so, the injured worker was ultimately awarded 100% permanent and total disability based on the addition of impairments provided by different medical specialties. The WCAB had not addressed the concept of addition of ratings across different medical specialties prior to this case.
