|Organization:||Department of Industrial Accidents|
|Docket Number:||DIA Board no. 052169-99|
- Employee: Anne Marie Tripp
- Employer: Cape Cod Hospital
- Self Insurer: Cape Cod Hospital
CARROLL, J. The employee appeals from a decision in which an administrative judge concluded that she had suffered an industrial accident, but that she had failed to prove any compensable incapacity beyond the without-prejudice period paid by the self-insurer. Because the G. L. c.152, § 11A, physician explicitly rendered no opinion on causation, making his opinion inadequate as a matter of law, we reverse the decision and recommit the case for the introduction of additional medical evidence, and for further findings of fact.
