Meloni v. General Motors Corp., IAB Hearing No. 1243136 IAB Hearing No. 1243684 (June 25, 2004)
This case includes a comprehensive discussion of the standard of causation for cumulative detrimental effect injuries. The Claimant must prove that the ordinary "stress and strain" of employment formed the substantial cause of his workers' compensation claim. That ordinary "stress and strain" must exist as a direct cause to the basis of the claim without which the injuries would not have occurred.
