COSTIGAN, J. The employee appeals from an administrative judge’s decision denying and dismissing her claim for workers’ compensation benefits. The insurer had raised the provisions of G. L. c. 152, § 1(7A),1 in defense of the employee’s claim, and the judge ruled that the employee failed to meet her burden of proving that her work-related right hip injury was, and remained, a major but not necessarily predominant cause of her disability and need for medical treatment. We summarize the pertinent facts.
