In local news:

Local claimant attorney Chuck Davoli discussed issues with the ACA and workers’ comp at the Fifth Annual Louisiana Workers’ Compensation Educational Conference last Thursday in Baton Rouge. Davoli talked extensively about the issues inherent in having two (or more) different fee schedules in health and workers’ comp and how that can affect what and how much treatment an injured worker can receive. Davoli also warned of recent cases questioning the constitutionality of the whole workers’ comp system (Padgett) and of key provisions such as the exclusive remedy (Duck.)
