In a case involving death benefits related to asbestos exposure and mesothelioma, Amanda Branson relied on nationally respected experts in this highly complex area to successfully defend the claim before the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). The dependent was alleging the decedent was exposed to asbestos while working for the employer, culminating in the decedent’s death. Ms. Branson introduced expert testimony to refute there was any causal connection between the decedent’s death and his employment, and the experts were credited by the ALJ.
