Multiple Injuries To The Same Body Part.

Pursuant to SB 899, and the decisions in Brodie and Benson, successive injuries to the same body part that become permanent and stationary at the same time can no longer be rated as a single injury. Rather, successive injuries must be rated separately, except when physicians cannot parcel out the causation of disability. See Benson v. WCAB (2009) 74 CCC 113.
