Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1916 edition. Excerpt: ... Aylward v. Oceanic Steamship Co., et-al., 2 Ind. Acc. Com. Cal. 95 (1915), it was held that where medical experts determine that an operation will probably greatly assist an injured employe's recovery, compensation will be made conditional upon the employe's acceptance of such operation when tendered by the employer or insurance carrier. If, however, the employe has been advised by his own physician that such an operation would be futile, his refusal to be operated upon up to the date of the Commission's award is not unreasonable; but when medical experts advise that an operation would relieve the disability and that the risk would be inconsiderable in view of the seriousness of the injury, the insurance carrier will be authorized to terminate payments of compensation during the period of the employe's refusal upon the ground that the disability of the injured employe is aggravated by his unreasonable refusal to submit to proper medical or surgical treatment. Upon request the Commission will also give notice that upon the employe's failure to accept the proffered operation within a short period, all right to compensation will be forever barred; and it will thereafter enter its order terminating payments in the event of continued refusal.

C. 425 (1914), where the employe refused to allow a finger to be amputated; Ollie's Case, 2 Mass. W. C. 676 (1914), where an employe refused a finger amputation because he would be embarrassed by the appearance of his hand afterwards. (26) Donnley v. Baird (1908), 1 B. W. C. C. 95, ...show more
