Partner Dan Kniffen Featured on Cover of the Georgia Bar Journal
Partner Dan Kniffen co-authored the article "Reasonable Medical Care and the Opioid Epidemic: What's Really Broken?", which was featured on the cover of the December 2018 edition of the Georgia Bar Journal. This article is a counterpoint to the article "The Broken Machine: Mandatory Medical Treatment Under Georgia's Workers' Compensation," which was in the October 2018 Georgia Bar Journal.
"Even the author of 'The Broken Machine' concedes that there may be 'legitimate concerns about opioid abuse'" a significant understantment. Indeed, every medical authority from the Center for Disease Control to the American Medical Association has decried what has accurately been called the 'epidemic' of opioid abuse, specifically when used to treat back injuries and many other work-related conditions."
