Medical Conditions: Chemical Exposures

McKay, Sr. v. City of Choteau [3/4/99] 1999 MTWCC 20 Police officer appealed Department of Labor hearing officer's decision he did not suffer from occupational disease resulting from alleged exposure to carbon monoxide in patrol car. Substantial evidence supports the hearing officer's determination, including the decision to credit the conclusions of the physician with specific expertise in carbon monoxide poisoning over those of other physicians. Further, the weight of additional evidence sides with the hearing officer's determination.
