Highlight

A claimant must prove by objective medical evidence that he suffered a compensable injury. Objective medical evidence may include a physician's medical opinion based on an examination, a patient's medical history, and the physician's education and experience.
Although a medical opinion supported by a treatise or other scientific authority may be more persuasive, physicians are not required to offer such support.
