- Employee: Harvey Saulnier
- Employer: New England Window & Door
- Insurer: Credit General Insurance Co. 
COSTIGAN, J. The insurer appeals from a decision in which the administrative judge found that the employee’s psychiatric condition was causally related to his accepted 1998 orthopedic injury, and awarded permanent and total incapacity benefits under G. L. c. 152, § 34A. The insurer argues that neither the judge’s findings of fact, nor the expert medical opinions in evidence, support the finding of permanent and total incapacity. It also argues that the judge failed to properly apply the provisions of § 1(7A)2 to the employee’s claim and, thus, committed an error of law in finding that the employee’s work-related neck and shoulder injury was "a major cause" of his psychiatric disability. We disagree on both counts, and affirm the decision.
