Norma Flores vs. Hms Host; Ace Usa Insurance, Administered By Gallagher Services

is a case involving Norma Flores and her workers' compensation claim against her employer, HMS Host, and their insurance provider, ACE USA Insurance, administered by Gallagher Services. Flores filed a Petition for Reconsideration, alleging that her injury should be presumed compensable due to the defendant's failure to deny the claim within 90 days, and that the reports of the panel qualified medical examiner (PQME) Timothy Ross M.D. do not constitute substantial medical evidence. The Workers' Compensation Appeals Board denied the Petition for Reconsideration, finding that the issue of the defendant's failure to deny the claim within 90 days was waived, and that the reports of the PQME constituted substantial evidence.
