The complexity of workers’ compensation cases can result from manifold causes—the nature of the injury and the circumstances of the injury are obvious , however there can be additional factors less obvious, like mutual suspicions of the worker and his/her employer, poor case management, misinformed expert witnesses and a myriad of other culprits that can conspire to prolong a case and maximize an untoward outcome for all parties involved. This chapter will delve into various, true-life case examples that illustrate such problems and result in so-called “nightmare cases.”
