On October 12, 2018 in a case called Bower v. Eaton Corp., the Nebraska Supreme Court held that a report signed by a physician’s assistant does not meet Workers’ Compensation Rule 10 requirements and is not admissible. You have to get the physician’s supervising physician to sign. This was a unanswered question until the Bower decision. This may cause more headaches for injured employees, their lawyers and the doctors who care for them. Much care is delivered through physician’s assistants. Whether this decision will cause the Legislature to amend the statute or the Nebraska Workers’ Compensation Court to modify Rule 10 remains to be seen.
