K.C. Pochettino, Esq. Secures Order from WCAB Setting Aside Erroneous NCP

Kathleen (K.C.) Pochettino, a partner in our Philadelphia office, secured a Decision and Order from the WCAB and the WCJ setting aside an NCP that was generated in error through an EDI filing.

The EDI process can be extremely vexing.  Excluding something as simple as a date in one field out of 50 can generate an NCP when there was no intention to do so.  Through the superb and credible testimony of the claims professional, as well as other documentary evidence, Attorney Pochettino was able to set aside the NCP.

PRACTICE NOTE- Do your best to avoid filing a SROI-PD and always include an award/decision date when paying on the same.
