  • Madison Granite Co. v. Indus. Comm'n of Ariz., 138 Ariz. 573, 676 P.2d 1 (Ct. App. 1983)
    In Madison, the Court of Appeals of Arizona ruled that a witness in a proceeding before the ICA, although not a medical doctor, may offer medical testimony as long as he or she possesses the necessary qualifications to be knowledgable on the facts of the specific case. Accordingly, the court affirmed the ALJ’s ruling in favor of the injured worker because he or she had met his or her burden of proof.

  • Carr v. Indus. Comm'n of Ariz., 197 Ariz. 164, 3 P.3d 1084 (Ct. App. 1999)
    In Carr, the Court of Appeals of Arizona ruled that an injured worker who is required to travel outside his community to receive medical treatment is entitled to be reimbursed for his travel expenses. The court reasoned that denying reimbursement for travel expenses would result in a financial hardship for the injured worker and would deny him medical treatment that he is entitled to receive under Arizona workers’ compensation laws.
