Medical Assessment Service assessor decision

The Supreme Court confirmed that in arriving at a determination a MAS assessor must do what the relevant guidelines require, but is not required to go beyond them. Further, where the guidelines direct the assessor on the proper method of assessment, a failure to record ranges of motion will not amount to a jurisdictional error. The plaintiff’s claim for relief failed and she was ordered to pay our client’s costs. (Stojanovic v MAA & Ors [2010] NSWSC 1090)
