IMPORTANT NEWS EFFECTIVE MARCH 15, 2008 To avoid scanning and storing extraneous records and those that do not comply with the General Instructions Regarding Prehearing Statement in controverted files, please comply with the following Notice To All Parties In Controverted Claims. The Notice reiterates the General Instructions Regarding Prehearing Statement and adds the following provisions: 1. A party shall not file medical records with the Commission unless submitted as an attachment to a Prehearing Statement or as an exhibit to a motion/response to motion. The Petition to Controvert and Answer no longer require the simultaneous filing of medical records with the Commission. A party shall secure the assigned Judge's permission before filing any single exhibit or attachment that exceeds 50 pages. Please see the following Notice for examples. The Commission will return to sender any records that do not comply with its filing instructions. 2. 3. American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com General Instructions Regarding Prehearing Statement 1. 2. 3. 4. Complete the PHS in 1 page by following the format of the sample completed form. Supplement as needed by filing an Amended PHS, noting all amendments in bold type. If there is no response to a request for an attachment under ITEM 18., please so state on a sheet of paper titled with the number of that attachment; e.g., if Claimant has not returned to work post-MMI, please so state on a sheet of paper titled Attmt. 3. Answer ITEMS 1-17 with the specific information requested, not "See Attached." Instructions Regarding Exhibits Take all depositions before the date of the evidentiary hearing. Do not offer the Answer or other pleadings already a part of the record as an exhibit. Include surveillance videotapes to be offered during the case-in-chief or impeachment. Paginate each page of each exhibit/attachment as "page ___ of ___ pages" or "3/23." Staple each exhibit separately from the other exhibits. Place exhibits in a binder clip, not a ringed or spiral bound notebook or binder; separate the exhibits with blue sheets of paper. Do not file medical records with the Commission unless submitted as an attachment to a PHS or as an exhibit to a motion/response to motion. - A party seeking to file any single document that exceeds 50 pages (excluding lay and medical depositions) as an attachment to a PHS or as an exhibit to a motion/response to motion must first secure the assigned Judge's permission. Place medical records in chronological order, beginning with the first date of treatment. - Offer records in the order in which the experts treated/evaluated claimant, i.e., offer Dr. McGuire's records as Exhibit 2 and Dr. Vohra's records as Exhibit 3 if claimant saw Dr. McGuire before Dr. Vohra. - File only one copy of the legible, intelligible records that address the contested issues. Generally, hospital records will be limited to ER records, admission/discharge summaries, operative reports, and diagnostic test reports. - Medical records may be attached to the PHS under an unsigned affidavit if the affidavit has been sent to the expert for signature. A signed affidavit must accompany records offered at the hearing absent a stipulation to their admission. Instructions Regarding Witness Lists Identify witnesses by name and address and designate as "will call" or "may call." Identify the reason for calling each witness, i.e., "occurrence witness." Other witnesses, not so listed, will be allowed to testify only for good cause shown. Attach notices of all expert depositions to the Witness List. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 1. 2. 3. 4.
