The worker also referred to Shamji v. Workers’ Compensation Appeal Tribunal, 2016 BCSC 1352. The worker submitted that at paragraph 107, Justice Voith asked: Why have an injured worker go through these different stages? In this case, it took the petitioner eight years and 12 hearings to arrive at this point. He had to separately establish his injury, the degree of his impairment, his eligibility to an LOE [loss of earnings] pension, and the assessment of that pension. Each stage required multiple hearings.
