There is a phenomenon that we all see in workers’ comp cases, whether representing the claimant or the insurer. An insurer or its medical expert might call it symptom magnification. In this edition of Workers’ Comp Matters,  host Attorney Alan S. Pierce, welcomes Attorney Douglas Jones, founder and Member-in-Charge of the law firm, Jones Dietz, PLLC, to look at the process, discuss related topics such as malingering as opposed to a more legitimate form of pain disorder and touch on the broader subject of fraud, which many people equate to symptom magnification.
