Highlight

When presented with conflicting expert medical opinions, it is for WSI, not the district court, to weigh credibility and resolve conflicts.
If WSI disregards medical evidence favorable to a claimant, WSI must consider the entire record, clarify inconsistencies, and adequately explain the reason for disregarding medical evidence favorable to the claimant, applying the two tests and the factors identified in the statute.
